The Kingdom of Franceball was a historical countryball in Europe and predecessor of Franceball.
He became a constitutional monarchy in 1790 and a republic in 1792. Later he became the First French Empireball to propagate his new ideas and make some conquests.
Since Louis divided the Franksball in an idiotic way, the lands of the Franks were divided into three. France was the westernmost one. Apart from several invasions from the Vikings, nothing really happened until William conquered England. Then, the English started marrying into French duchies and getting unions. The French had a tiny amount of land, but Philip the second changed that. He took almost the entirety of English France from the incompetent John Lackland, and by the end of his rule in 1223, the English had only half of the duchy of Aquitaine. The conflict stopped when the two powers signed the Treaty of Paris in 1259. The English wanted to control France, so they declared war in 1337. Although the initial part of the war was successful for England, A farm girl destroyed their armies. They burned her, but it was too late for them to change the war around and in 1453 they stopped fighting. That is the same year that Ottoman Empireball captured Constantinople.
Later, Spanish Empireball found the new world in 1492 and the French invested in it as well. They also became allies with Ottoman Empireball because they both hated the Habsburgball. The French built up colonies in North America. They participated in the war of the Spanish Succession (1701-1714) and the Austrian succession (1741-1746), which weakened them, and lead to defeat in the Seven Years War. They lost all of their colonies in mainland North America in that conflict. In revenge, they and the Spanish sent lots of money to the rebelling USAball in the American Civil War. They even got beaten by the British in India and lost all of their colonies there. By 1789, there was a famine, and a financial crisis, so people revolted and the Kingdom of Franceball died and he was replaced by First French Empireball. He was revived again in 1815, but he died again in 1830 and was replaced by the July Monarchyball.
