Simplon , earlier known as Simpeln, is a municipality in the district of Brig in the canton of Valais in Switzerland.
The area was part of Italy since the Roman Empire, but it was colonized by the Germans after 1000 AD, so the Bishop of Sion bought it from the counts of Novara in 1291.
Simplon is first mentioned in 1267 as Simpilion. In 1285 it was mentioned as Xeinplon'.
