Nationality of St Eucherius

St. Eucherius was born in Orleans, France. ... He was sent away to Cologne in Germany.

Born in Orléans, France ... it was certainly in Gaul, and in Roman Empire, and in Francia as a Merovingian Kingdom getting close to Carlovingian Kingship, but it is a moot point whether it was already France.

(French as a written language did not exist, the divisions of Charlemagne's Empire between his three sons was not made yet ... it is a bit like describing Pontius Pilate as a native Italian, Spaniard or Frenchman whichever he was ...)

As with Cologne "in Germany" and Liège no doubt "in Belgium" ....
