Gaul or Gallia was a historical region located in modern-day France, ultimately conquered by and absorbed into the Roman Republic as it was transitioning into the Roman Empire.

"The Gauls" is a collective term used to describe a loose assortment of Celtic cultural identities in Gallia, Italia, Belgica, and Hispania, during the same time periods.
