The Mitterand Era 1981-95

Web Home USA Europe Bahamas ... Contact W hen François Mitterrand won the presidential elections over Giscard in 1981, he embodied all the hopes of a generation of Socialists who had never seven their party in power. Headed by Pierre Mauroy as prime minister and including four Communist ministers, the Socialists ' first government after 23 years in opposition started off bright, popular and optimistic. It was committed to an increase in state control over industry, high taxation for the rich, more power to local government, a public spending programme to raise the liing standards of the least well-off and support for liberation struggles around the world. For Mitterrand, European integration was of great importance - France was after all, one of the founder members of the EEC - but was a primarily political rather than economic project, to ensure peace and security and to create a counterweight to American hegemony. By 1984, however, the flight of capital, inflation and budget deficits had forced a complete olte-face. The new prime minister, Laurent Fabius , presided over a cabinet of centrist to conseratie "socialist" ministers, clinging desperately to power. Their 1986 election slogan was "Help - the Right is coming back", a bizarrely self-fulfilling message.

- At some time in the 7th century the district which is now Northamptonshire suffered a simultaneous invasion by the West Saxons from the south and the Anglian tribes from the north, and relics discovered in the county testify to a mingling of races, at the same time showing that West Saxon influence never spread farther north than a line from Daventry to Warwick, and with the extension of the Mercian kingdom under Penda and the conversion of the midland districts ceased altogether.

France History



In 1066, William of Normandy, better known as William the Conqueror extended French rule to England following the Battle of Hastings. Following that England and Normandy were ruled as one. Tensions arose out of this and different claims on the land and the throne emerged from the French and English sides. Edward III of England and Charles Philip of France were the rivals to the throne who precipitated the start of the hundred years’ war between the two sides. This was a series of conflicts between the countries lasting a total of 116 years ending only in 1453 with the expulsion of the English from France.
1453 – 1598 was the period of the French Renaissance which saw artists such as Da Vinci move from Italy to France to continue their work. It is also the period that conflicts between Protestants and Catholics came to a head ending only when Henri IV became the first Bourbon King; converting to Catholicism and granting political and religious rights to the Huguenots.
1598 – 1715 was the period in which Louis XIV and Louis XV both reigned. Louis XIV had a reputation for extravagance both in terms of his own wealth and surroundings but also the wars he fought in order to increase France’s influence; when he ascended to the throne Louis XV granted increasing rights to the bourgeoisie.

Conquest of Aquitane 1450
But though Joan was gone, her work lasted. The Constable, Artur of Richmond, the Count of Dunois, and other brave leaders, continued to attack the English. After seventeen years' vengeance for his father's death, the Duke of Burgundy made his peace with Charles by a treaty at Arras, on condition of paying no more homage, in 1434. Bedford died soon after, and there were nothing but disputes among the English. Paris opened its gates to the king, and Charles, almost in spite of himself, was restored. An able merchant, named Jacques CÅ“ur, lent him money which equipped his men for the recovery of Normandy, and he himself, waking into activity, took Rouen and the other cities on the coast.

The Maid of Orleans (Joan of Arc)
When Henry V. died in 1422, and the unhappy Charles a few weeks later, the infant Henry VI. was proclaimed King of France as well as of England, at both Paris and London, while Charles VII. was only proclaimed at Bourges, and a few other places in the south. Charles was of a slow, sluggish nature, and the men around him were selfish and pleasure-loving intriguers, who kept aloof all the bolder spirits from him.
The Burgundians hated her even more than the English. The inquisitor was of their party, and a court was held at Rouen, which condemned her to die as a witch. Bedford consented, but left the city before the execution. Her own king made no effort to save her, though, many years later, he caused enquiries to be made, established her innocence, ennobled her family, and freed her village from taxation.

    France: History
    From LoveToKnow 1911
    HISTORY The identity of the earliest inhabitants of Gaul is veiled in obscurity, though philologists, anthropologists and archaeologists are using the glimmer of traditions collected by ancient historians to shed a faint twilight upon that remote C past. The subjugation of those primitive tribes did not mean their annihilation: their blood still flows in the veins of Frenchmen; and they survive also on those megalithic monuments (see STONE MONUMENTS) with which the soil of France is dotted, in the drawings and sculptures of caves hollowed out along the sides of the valleys, and in the arms and ornaments yielded by sepulchral tumuli, while the names of the rivers and mountains of France probably perpetuate the first utterances of those nameless generations. The first peoples of whom we have actual knowledge are the Iberians and Ligurians. The Basques who now inhabit both sides of the Pyrenean range are probably the last representatives of the Iberians, who came from Spain to settle between the Mediterranean and the Bay of Biscay . The Ligurians, who exhibited the hard cunning characteristic of the Genoese
