Béarn is a former province of France, located in the Pyrenees mountains and in the plain at their feet, in the Aquitaine region. Along with the three Basque provinces of Soule, Lower Navarre, and Labourd, the principality of Bidache, as well as small parts of Gascony, it forms the current département of Pyrenees-Atlantiques.
In Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers series, d'Artagnan was from Bearn (he mentions having attended his father's funeral there in the second book, Twenty Years After).
