Sounds good.  There are reams of historical information about Neustria,
going all the way back to the Roman Empire, in which Neustria originated
as a church province.  It was later at various times part of the kingdoms of
various Merovingians and Capetians.

Let me second that.  One of the most interesting things about Sinclair
history to me is how it is not only astonishingly ancient, but it also
is woven into the major events of most of the centuries since about 800 A.D.
This gives it a density and extent both in itself and as a perspective
for viewing more general history that is hard to match.
