The University of Provence Aix-Marseille I (French: Université de Provence) was a public research university mostly located in Aix-en-Provence and Marseille. It was one of the three Universities of Aix-Marseille and was part of the Academy of Aix and Marseille. On 1 January 2012 it merged with the University of the Mediterranean and Paul Cézanne University to become Aix-Marseille University, the youngest, but also the largest in terms of students, budgets and staff in the French-speaking world. The University of Provence was founded on 9 December 1409 as a studium generale by Louis II of Anjou, Count of Provence, and subsequently recognized by papal bull issued by Antipope Alexander V. In 1792, the University of Provence, along with twenty-one other universities, was dissolved. The university was recreated in 1896. Following riots among university students in May 1968, it was re-established in 1970 through a merger of the school of humanities in Aix-en-Provence and the science one in Marseille. "The University of Provence [was] one of the most distinguished in France, second only to the University of Paris in the areas of French literature, history, and linguistics", according to Harvard University's website.
