Montbazon is a commune in the Indre-et-Loire department in central France. It is located on the river Indre between the towns of Veigné, Monts and Sorigny. The town is about 12 km from Tours.

History

In 991, friars of Cormery complained to the king[who?] that Fulk Nerra, lord of Anjou, was building a fortress in their land of Montbazon (he became lord of Montbazon in 997 although he was 17 years old).

From 994, the lofty fortress dominated a strategic point on the Indre river.
