About this deal

France expanded until it reached natural bounderies seas with mediterranean, gascony golfe and the Channel ( french élite fought a lot against the plantagenet/lancastrian for that ), mountains with the Alps, Pyrénées and low mountains Vosges, Jura, Ardenne as its shown in the detailed map of France. France argued with Germany concerning the Rhine, French wanted the left bank of the Rhine and German considered that the Vosges mountain should be the frontier, but obviously having the Alsatian Rhine access is as well an economic asset as a good military frontier for France. Among the deepest points on the earth's surface, not covered by water, is the ice-covered Bentley Subglacial Trench. The trench is located in western Antarctica and has a depth of 2,555 meters (8,382 ft) below sea level. The answer for this question varies from source to source. According to United Nations Organisations, there are 195 countries in the world. Out of which 2 countries that are non-member observer states: the Holy See (Vatican City) and the State of Palestine.

General Napoleon Bonaparte seized control of the Republic in 1799 becoming First Consul and later Emperor of the French Empire (1804–1814; 1815). As a continuation of the French Revolutionary Wars, changing sets of European coalitions declared wars on Napoleon's empire. His armies conquered most of continental Europe with swift victories such as the battles of Jena-Auerstadt and Austerlitz. Members of the Bonaparte family were appointed as monarchs in some of the newly established kingdoms. [65] The northernmost point on Earth is the Geographic North Pole, where the northern end of Earth's axis of rotation meets the surface on the ice of the Arctic Ocean.million years ago most of the earth's land was one huge continent named Pangaea, meaning "all lands." All the seas were one huge ocean called Panthalassa, meaning "all seas."

Metropolitan France covers 551,500 square kilometres (212,935sqmi), [87] the largest among European Union members. [19] France's total land area, with its overseas departments and territories (excluding Adélie Land), is 643,801km 2 (248,573sqmi), 0.45% of the total land area on Earth. France possesses a wide variety of landscapes, from coastal plains in the north and west to mountain ranges of the Alps in the southeast, the Massif Central in the south-central and Pyrenees in the southwest. Louis XVI (r. 1774–1793) actively supported the Americans with money, fleets and armies, helping them win independence from Great Britain. France gained revenge but spent so heavily that the government verged on bankruptcy—a factor that contributed to the French Revolution. Some of the Enlightenment occurred in French intellectual circles, and major scientific breakthroughs and inventions, such as the naming of oxygen (1778) and the first hot air balloon carrying passengers (1783), were achieved by French scientists. French explorers, such as Bougainville and Lapérouse, took part in the voyages of scientific exploration through maritime expeditions around the globe. The Enlightenment philosophy, in which reason is advocated as the primary source of legitimacy, undermined the power of and support for the monarchy and also was a factor in the French Revolution. The Franks embraced the Christian Gallo-Roman culture, and ancient Gaul was eventually renamed Francia ("Land of the Franks"). The Germanic Franks adopted Romanic languages, except in northern Gaul where Roman settlements were less dense and where Germanic languages emerged. Clovis made Paris his capital and established the Merovingian dynasty, but his kingdom would not survive his death. The Franks treated land purely as a private possession and divided it among their heirs, so four kingdoms emerged from that of Clovis: Paris, Orléans, Soissons, and Rheims. The last Merovingian kings lost power to their mayors of the palace (head of household). One mayor of the palace, Charles Martel, defeated an Umayyad invasion of Gaul at the Battle of Tours (732) and earned respect and power within the Frankish kingdoms. His son, Pepin the Short, seized the crown of Francia from the weakened Merovingians and founded the Carolingian dynasty. Pepin's son, Charlemagne, reunited the Frankish kingdoms and built a vast empire across Western and Central Europe.

Q2: What is the French education system like?

The Eiffel Tower is a globally recognized landmark and symbol of France, located in the heart of Paris. It was built in 1889 for the World's Fair and was initially meant to be a temporary structure.

France generally has a positive reputation regarding LGBT rights. [136] Since 1999, civil unions for homosexual couples have been permitted, and since 2013, same-sex marriage and LGBT adoption are legal. [137] Laws prohibiting discriminatory speech in the press are as old as 1881. Some consider hate speech laws in France to be too broad or severe, undermining freedom of speech. [138] Among the candidates for the deepest known point on the Earth's seabed is the Challenger Deep, which lies in the Hadal Zone of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean at nearly -11,000 m (-36,090 ft). [ 2] While French is not an official language in these countries, it is widely used in administration and many professional sectors, as well as being highly influential as a cultural language in the local society and has certain privileges in the education system.

Facing financial troubles, Louis XVI summoned the Estates-General (gathering the three Estates of the realm) in May 1789 to propose solutions to his government. As it came to an impasse, the representatives of the Third Estate formed a National Assembly, signalling the outbreak of the French Revolution. Fearing that the king would suppress the newly created National Assembly, insurgents stormed the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a date which would become France's National Day. Next in size are the various Deserts of Australia, which cover nearly 1.4 million km², about 18% of Australia's mainland territory. Apart from the polar regions, Australia is the driest continent in the world. About 35 percent of the continent receives so little rain that it is basically a desert. The Gobi Desert to the east of the Taklamakan Desert covers parts of China's Inner Mongolia and southern parts of Mongolia.
