The pagus Curtracensis lay to the south between the rivers Escaut and Lys, included the monastery of Blandin, and covered the doyenns of Courtrai, Helchin and Oudenaarde.
The pagus Tornacensis was east of the pagus Curtracensis and the river Escaut/Schelde, south of the river Espierre and north of the rivers Elnon and Pvle.
It is possible that the doyenn and town of Roulers was also included.The county of Flanders took its name from the Carolingian pagus flandrensis, located around Bruges, the countship of which was granted to Baudouin I in 863 by Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks whose daughter he had abducted.Before this date, the senior governing figure in the area was apparently the "forestier", in other words the "controller" of the forests, a post held successively by some of Baudouin's supposed ancestors, although both their existence and, if they did exist, the extent of their authority is subject to debate.It is possible that the imperial "march" of Flanders itself developed after the mid-11th century, maybe as a consolidation of territory which was formally part of the other three imperial marches which are referred to above.Whatever the precise process by which the march of Flanders evolved, by the late 11th century the counts of Flanders were firmly established in that territory and therefore owed allegiance to the French king for the western part of their county and to the German emperor for the eastern part.
