Haute-Vienne (Occitan: Nauta-Viena or Nauta-Vinhana) is a department of France in the region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine. It is named after the Vienne river that flows through the department.

History

Haute-Vienne is one of the 83 French departments made during the French revolution, on 4 March 1790. It was created from parts of the old province of Limousin, its southern half, and of the county of Marche, its northern half, as well as some parts of Angoumois and Poitou.

The new department had six districts: Limoges, Le Dorat, Bellac, Saint-Junien, Saint-Yrieix and Saint-Léonard. The capital (now prefecture) was Limoges.[4]

In 1800, with the creation of the arrondissements in France, the six districts were changed into four arrondissements: Limoges, Bellac, Rochechouart and Saint-Yrieix.[4]

On 10 September 1926, the arrondissement of Saint-Yrieix was eliminated.[4]
