- In the 9th century, Anjou was all about Charles the Bald (worst King name ever) expelling the marauding Vikings, while the 13th century had it ruled by Charles I, he himself the expelled King of Sicily. Now the area south of Angers in the central-western Loire Valley gets its fame for its tourist-mobbed castles and its wines, like Clos de l'Arche's bright and herbaceous Cabernet Franc.
