The Ecclesiastical Divisions of France

The Metropolitan and Primatial Sees [Archdioceses] of France

Roman Catholicism in France

As a general rule the territories of the archdioceses of France were aligned more or less on the political boundaries of the various different duchies and counties. There were some notable exceptions to this.

Bordeaux [Aquitaine and Gascony]
In 1027 the dukes of Gascony and Aquitaine selected a single archbishop to span both their regions. Bourges had claims on the archdiocese of Aquitaine, but these were based on a forgery. Besides the archbishop of Bourges could not enforce this being in land controlled by the king of France. 

Bourges (8th century)
Gauls Lyons- the Gauls (in reality the provinces called Lugdunenses)
Arles, Gaul and Spain
Reims
Vienne, Burgundy, Primate of Primates[21]
Narbonne[1]
Bordeaux[18]
Rouen - Normandy,[22] France[10]
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Auch, Novempopulania and both Navarres

The Archbishop of Lyons was made by Gregory VII, Primate of the Gauls, in reality of the provinces called formerly "Lugdunenses".  

The Archbishop of Vienne was known as the "Primate of Primates". In 1120 Callistus II, who had been Bishop of Vienne under the name of Guy of Burgundy, decided that the Archbishop of Vienne should have for suffragans the Bishop of Grenoble, Bishop of Valence, Bishop of Die, Bishop of Viviers, Bishop of Geneva, and Bishop of Maurienne; that the Archbishop of Tarantaise should obey him, notwithstanding the fact that this archbishop himself had suffragans, that he should exercise the primacy over the province of Bourges, province of Narbonne, province of Bordeaux, province of Aix, province of Auch and province of Embrun, and that, as the metropolitans of both provinces already bore the title of primate, the Archbishop of Vienne should be known as the "Primate of Primates".
