Alise-Sainte-Reine is a commune in the Côte-d'Or department in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region of eastern France.The inhabitants of the commune are known as Alisiens or Alisiennes.EtymologyBecause of its identification with Alesia the origin of the name of Alise-Sainte-Reine has been the subject of numerous studies. Several ideas have been proposed for a root of *alis and three proposals have attracted the attention of linguists and toponymists: Alisier (a tree originating from Southern Europe)Rocky height, CliffSource These points were confirmed by Jacques Lacroix in his study of the god of Alise: Alisanos.Research on alisier remains largely unfinished despite numerous attempts to develop the subject.The theme of the oronyme *alis or *ales meaning "rocky height" is the one that is currently most frequently put forward to explain the name of Alesia. It is from an Indo-European root *palis or *pales, the initial became silent in Celtic, while on the contrary it remains in Latin place names such as Palatinus (Palatine Hill) for example. In Germanic the Indo-European was mute which gives *falisa in lower Old Frankish, felisa in Old High German or the German Fels meaning "rock". A number of researchers also believe that the term may be suitable for a site in Alise-Sainte-Reine that has cliffs.Use our custom trip planner: Alise-Sainte-Reine and all its delights await.
