The river gave its name to the departements of Haute Marne, Marne, Seine et Marne & Val de Marne. An island in the Marne river Nr Chelles. The Marne starts in the Langres plateau runs generally north then bends west between Saint Dizier & Chalons en Champagne, joining the Seine at Charenton just upstream from Paris. Its main tributaries are the Rognon, the Blaise, the Saulx the Ourcq, the Petit Morin & the Grand Morin. In the Champagne region, part of the flow is diverted through the artificial lake Lac du Der Chantecoq. This ensures both flood prevention & the maintenance of minimum river flows in periods of drought. The Celts of Gaul worshipped a goddess known as Dea Matrona divine mother goddess who was associated with the Marne. The Marne is famous as the site of 2 eponymous battles during World War I. The first battle was a turning point of the war fought in 1914. The second battle was fought 4 years later, in 1918. During the 19th & 20th centuries the Marne inspired many painters.
