Geografie

Die Gemeinde Many liegt etwa 30 Kilometer südöstlich von Metz und sieben Kilometer südwestlich von Faulquemont.

Geschichte

Das Dorf lag im Mittelalter noch im deutschen Sprachgebiet und wurde 1180 erstmals als Niderheim erwähnt, ist aber mittlerweile seit Jahrhunderten frankophon. Nördlich führt eine alte Römerstraße vorbei, südlich liegen die Überreste des um 1580 aufgegebenen Dorfes Marcourt.

Many gehört seit 1766 zu Frankreich. 1871–1918 gehörte es vorübergehend noch einmal zum Deutschen Reich, Französisch blieb aber Amts- und Umgangssprache.
