The kingdom of France of the medieval ages emerged from the Western dominion of Europe. It was called Charlemagne's empire of Carolingians. During those days the territory was prominently called Western Francis. It was during the later years in and around 987 that the prominence of this Western Francis heightened with the formation of the Hugh Capet. The house of Capet is quite significant in the French history. Causes of French revolutions later on, the civil wars, the Viking threat, and many other interesting aspects make the history of France a very interesting subject for anyone from any part of the world.
