Beauce is a [bos] natural region in northern France, located between the Seine and Loire rivers. It now comprises the Eure-et-Loir and parts of département Loiret, Essonne and Loir-et-Cher.
The region shared the history of the
province of Orléanais and the county of Chartres, which is its only major city. Beauce is one of France's most productive agricultural areas.
The name derives from
Latin Belsia or Belsa, said by Virgilius Maro Grammaticus to be a Gaulish word meaning "grass plain, cultivated plain."  It was formerly spelled  La Beausse. 
It is the setting of
Émile Zola's novel, La Terre ( The Earth).
