 Development of Euskadi
This region was traditionally composed of seven provinces, three being French (Lapurdi, Behe-Nafarroa/Lower Navarre and Zuberoa) and four being Spanish (Araba, Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa, and Nafarroa/Upper Navarre).
The northern Basque Provinces were slowly absorbed into France over the course of the 14th and 15th centuries, and Navarre's partition between France and Spain came in the 16th century.)

Much to the displeasure of many Navarrese, the decision was made to divide the province on ethnolinguistic lines, handing Upper Navarre over to the Basques after a successful referendum while maintaining the rest of Navarre as a separate self-governing region.
