France

The present French republic can seek its origin in the kingdom created by the Franks, a Germanic tribe, in the Migration age. When the Frankish kingdom was partitioned in 843 became the eastern part of it France. In the late ninth and early tenth century France's central power eroded away and France disintegrated into several feudal petty states. The French royal power was however strengthened in the beginning of the thirteenth century and during the following centuries were the different hereditary fiefs returned to the crown one by one. In the New Age was France strong enough to expand outwards and large territories that had not belonged to France during the Middle Age was incorporated, this included most of the kingdom of Burgundy and remaining parts of Lorraine.
