Before France was conquered by the Romans in 51 BC, the country was inhabited by Celtic people known as the Gauls. However, after Roman conquest, the Gauls would fade away. However, the Romans would find stiff opposition from Germanic Franks who had been in the area for more than a few hundred years. Eventually, these two parties would create the kingdom of France during medieval times, despite the constant political and cultural tension between the two groups pf people.They would later become a major power in Europe during the latter part of the middle ages.
