<strong>French</strong> Facts - Did you know?<br />

⚜ Louis XIX was the king of France for just 20 minutes, the shortest ever reign – he<br />

ascended to the <strong>French</strong> throne in July 1830 after his father Charles X abdicated,<br />

and abdicated himself 20 minutes later in favour of his nephew, the Duke of<br />

Bordeaux. He shares this record with Crown Prince Luís Filipe, who technically<br />

became king of Portugal after his father was assassinated but died from a wound<br />

20 minutes later.<br />

⚜ The <strong>French</strong> Army was the first to use camouflage in 1915 (World War I) – the<br />

word camouflage came from the <strong>French</strong> verb ‘to make up for the stage’. Guns and<br />

vehicles were painted by artists called camofleurs.<br />

⚜ In France you can marry a dead person – under <strong>French</strong> law, in exceptional cases<br />

you can marry posthumously, as long as you can also prove that the deceased had<br />

the intention of marrying while alive and you receive permission from the <strong>French</strong><br />

president. The most recent approved case was in 2017, when the partner of a gay<br />

policeman gunned down on Paris's Champs-Elysees by a jihadist was granted<br />

permission to marry his partner posthumously.<br />

⚜ France was the first country in the world to ban supermarkets from throwing away<br />

or destroying unsold food – since February 2016, shops must donate wastage to<br />

food banks or charities<br />

⚜ Europe’s highest mountain is in the <strong>French</strong> Alps – Mont Blanc, at 4,810m, takes<br />

an arduous 10 to 12 hours to climb to the summit. Alternatively, you can take a<br />

leisurely 20-minute trip up on Europe’s highest cable car on the nearby Aiguille du<br />

Midi to get a brilliant view of Mont Blanc.<br />

⚜ Paris Gare du Nord is Europe's busiest railway station – and by far, with some 190<br />

million passengers passing through each year. Inaugurated in 1846, it it also one<br />

of the world's oldest stations.<br />

⚜ France produces nearly a billion tons of cheese a year in around 1,200 different<br />

varieties – in France it's an ancient art: goats cheese dates back to at least 500AD,<br />

the blue-veined Roquefort was mentioned in records of an ancient monastery in<br />

Conques as early as 1070, and hard farm cheeses like Emmental started to appear<br />

in the 13th century. A <strong>French</strong> proverb claims 'un fromage par jour de l’année' –<br />

there is a different cheese for every day of the year.<br />

⚜ The <strong>French</strong> eat around 30,000 tonnes of snails a year – but only about 1,000<br />

tonnes of the classic <strong>French</strong> delicacy (served with garlic, parsley and butter) come<br />

from France; only some 100 registered snail farms existed in France in 2015. If<br />

you've eaten snails in France, chances are they were plucked from the fields and<br />

roadsides of Eastern Europe.<br />

⚜ It is against the law to carry live snails on a high-speed train in France without<br />

their own tickets – in fact, any domesticated animal under 5kg must be a paying<br />

passenger in France. In 2008, a <strong>French</strong>man was fined when he was caught<br />

carrying snails on a TGV, although the fine was later waived.
