In 985 Montpellier was mentioned in the document for donation in the nearby episcopal town of Maguelone by a local feudal dynasty, the Guilhem for an agricultural field on the Mons Pestelarium. The location of Montpellier between Spain and Italy and close to the north side of Via Domitia, has influence in the business and the life of the area. In the south of Montpellier there is “La Route du Sel” (The Route of Salt) who gives the ability of raising the salt production from Languedoc to the Aveyron and in the north of France. The domain is more specifically located on the Cami Roumieu or Roman Road which passes between them. The etymology of them stay mystery but the most serious hypothesis recall the strategy position of the hill: Le Mont de Verrou (the mount of the lock).

From the first half of the 11th century, the Guilhem’s house became more powerful than Maguelone. The flattered unions came along with the raise of power of the Lord of Montpellier: Guilhem VII who got married to the descendant of Hugues Capet, Mathilde from Bourgogne, in 1156 and after that Guilhem VIII who got married to Eudoxie, the niece of the Emperor of Byzance. Their daughter Marie marries Pierre d’Aragon in 1204. The town became Spanish and it stayed like that until it was rebought from the King of France in 1349.

This Spanish period is the reason of developing the economic and culture in the city. The Merchants of Montpellier traded with the East (Orient) purchase like spices, herbs and therapeutic plants. The virtues of these plants were used in every new medical University created in the 13th century. At the same time in Montpellier opened the doors of the colleges of law and art. The University of Montpellier develops and its excellent reputation attracts students from all over the Kingdom, including Rabelais who finished his medical studies there in 1530.

In the end of 14th century, Montpellier had a period of decline, with an epidemic of plague and starvation, the successive plagues killed many people, of its population.

By the middle of the 15th century with the setting of Jacques Coeur, the treasurer of Charles VII, the city had managed to recover some of its former status and economy. Unfortunately, the joining with the Province of France in 148, marked for good the end of the rise, because Marseille became the first business port with the Orient and the Kingdom.

In the 16th century, with the coming reform, Montpellier started an era with Religions Wars, between Catholics and Protestants which took control of the city, until 1622 when the king of France Louis XIII oversaw the siege of the city, which resisted three months, Richelieu build a citadel for supervise the city. This seat had helped with the departure of the Protestants and again Montpellier came under Catholic domination. After this Louis XIV, witch statue today is in the park Promenade du Peyrou, made Montpellier the Royal Capital of the Languedoc.

In the 17th and 18th century Montpellier was the scene of big architectural development with the work of architects like Daviler and Giral. They build the Promenade du Peyrou, L’Esplanade and many fountains. The riches private houses, known as hôtels and churches were also build by senior state employees and businessman during this period.

In the 19th century, the viticulture grew strongly, favoring a new architectural development with the construction of the Palace of Justice, the station, the reconstruction of the theater and also building of new churches like Sainte Anne and Saint Roch. These days the viticulture prospers in Languedoc, however, it has experienced a black period with the phylloxera and the problems related to the overproduction.

In the 20th century the city of Montpellier experienced a significant increase with the first migration from French Alleger named after that “pied-noir” (black feet). The Paillade is the result of this sudden increase of the population. Then the City starts renovating entire neighborhoods and building new neighborhoods on the outskirts of the city and it is still in permanent mutation. The neighborhood of Antigone, part of the place of the comedy and the commercial center of the Polygon to some new hotels that live as well till nowadays. Then follows the Port Marianne district along the benches of the river Lez.

To develop the economic dynamism of Montpellier, five large sectors of activities have been created: Euro medicine is welcoming laboratorial researches; Agro polis for agro-food; Antenna for the audiovisual sector; Heliopolis for the development of tourism; and culture that is very important in Languedoc.

Montpellier is the headquarters, for example, of the Festival Radio France, of the Festival Montpellier Dance and of the International Festival of Mediterranean Film. A computing center created with the implantation of IBM in the 1960s followed by the company Dell.

Nowadays, Montpellier has lost its status of regional capital for the benefit of Toulouse but keeps a few administrative centers.
