The monarchy ruled France until the French Revolution, in 1789.
Louis XVI was executed (in 1793), along with thousands of other French citizens.
After a series of short-lived governmental schemes, Napoleon Bonaparte seized
control of the Republic in 1799, making himself First Consul,
and later Emperor of what is now known as the First Empire (1804–1814).
Following Napoleon's final defeat in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo,
the French monarchy was re-established.
France had colonial possessions, in various forms,
since the beginning of the 17th century until the 1960s.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, its global overseas colonial empire
was the second largest in the world behind the British Empire.
France was a victorious nation in World War I and World War II.
Yet, it's not very good in wars anymore.
