From: Novum ac Magnum Theatrum Urbium Belgicae Foederate.

Thérouanne is a commune in the Pas-de-Calais department in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France. At the time of the Gauls, Tarwanna or Tervanna was the capital of the Belgian tribe of the Morin but later when the Romans conquered Gaul, they too made the city the capital of the Civitas Morinorum district. Later in history the town was captured by the Emperor Maximilian and Henry VIII from the French in 1513 after the battle of the Spurs. In 1553, the date shown in the map title panel Charles V besieged Thérouanne in revenge for a defeat by the French at the siege of Metz. After he captured the city he ordered it to be razed, the roads to be broken up, and the area to be ploughed. Only a small commune which remained then named Saint-Martin-Outre-Eaux, was left standing, which took over the name Thérouanne around 1800.
