Francia was established from the combination of Lugdunensis and Belgica against the expanded Province of Aquitania. They were united in the pursuit of Liberty, a new idea which erupted in the Frankish Revolution. Francia's first Governor was Decius, son of Emperor Jacobus, that was the reason it was admitted as a Senatorial Province so early. Decius eventually became Emperor and Francia benefitted greatly from his patronage.
