In dialectology, Romance Belgium (Belgique romane in French), once called Wallonia (Wallonie in French) before the federalization of Belgium, is the part of Belgium where people traditionally speak one of the regional romance languages, all from the Langues d'oïl group. Romance Belgium includes almost all of Dialectal Wallonia where Walloon and French are spoken, a picardic zone corresponding to the major part of the Province of Hainaut, the Pays gaumais (district of Virton) with the Lorrain language and a Champenois zone (Sugny, Bohan, Bagimont, Pussemange, Membre et Cul-des-Sarts). Romance Belgium is entirely in Wallonia.
