Elzange is a small town of approximately 1,500 inhabitants situated on the Moselle River. It is located in the Lorraine region of France, about 30 km from Metz and Nancy. The village has an old church (St-Martin), several hotels and restaurants as well as a number of shops including bakeries, butchers' shops and pharmacies. The name Elzingen comes from Alzeu + inga = Alzeu's people or property; it was first mentioned in 893 AD when King Arnulf gave his son Louis some land there. In 1236 it became part of Germany with the rest of Lorraine until 1648 when France took over control again after which it remained French until 1766 when Austria took control for 20 years before Napoleon regained power over all Europe except Russia during his reign between 1804–1814.
