The Treaty of Paris, signed in Meaux by Raymond VII of Toulouse and Louis IX of France, formally ends the Albigensian Crusade in southern France. Raymond VII concedes defeat and submits to the authority of both Louis IX and the pope.

He gives half of his lands directly to Louis and because his daughter is wed to Louis' brother, the rest of his lands will come under royal French control after he dies. This ends any independence from France of Occitania (Aquitaine), currently the French provinces of Limousin, Auvergne, Languedoc and Gascony.
