Saint-Georges-du-Bois is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in south-western France. Charente-Maritime is a department on the west coast of France named after the Charente River. Previously a part of Saintonge, Charente-Inferieure was one of the 83 original departments created during the French Revolution on March 4, 1790. On September 4, 1941, it was renamed Charente-Maritime. When first created, the commune of Saintes was assigned as the prefecture of the department (Saintes had previously been the prefecture of Saintonge). This changed in 1810 when Napoleon passed an imperial decree which moved the prefecture to La Rochelle.
