Franconia

Franconia (german franken, bavarian frankn, franggn) is the northern part of the german federal state of bavaria. This region is divided in three smaller regions oberfranken, mittelfranken, and unterfranken.

Franconia (german franken in the franconian dialect franggn frg) is a region in germany, characterised by its culture and language, and may be roughly associated with the areas in which the east franconian dialect group, colloquially referred to as franconian (german fränkisch), is spoken.

There are several other franconian dialects, but only the east franconian ones are colloquially referred to as franconian.

The franconia region was heavily settled during the sixth and seventh centuries, and it was the franks who gave it its name. Franconia as a word is composed of three parts frank, meaning free, a plural suffix -on (which in its modern form is -en), and a latin suffix denoting a country or region, -ia, supplying frank-on-ia.
