From prehistoric Neanderthals to the present nation at the heart of the European Union—a comprehensive look at France's history.

From the Enlightenment and the French Revolution to colonialism in the Caribbean, Africa, and Southeast Asia, France has had a profound impact on the modern world. Famous for its cultural and political contributions to civilization, France now occupies a central role in the European Union, of which it is the largest member state.

  • Migration and eventual defeat of the Gauls by the Romans under Julius Caesar
  • Wave of invasions of Germanic tribes from central and eastern Europe

  • Joan of Arc and the making of the monarchy
  • The French Revolution
