I've moved this page from being a redirect to the general history of France to one directly about the Kingdom before the Revolution. I think its criminal that there are articles on the United Provinces, the Commonwealth of England etc, but no overarching article on a state as powerful as this one.
At the moment it's only been a first attempt, and I'm not good enough at writing or history to do this on my own. But I hope a lot of wikipedians into European history can together develop this into something special.188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:30, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
With due respect, I think this page is a perfect example of an unnecessary disambiguation page. A disambiguation page for Georgia makes great sense, because Georgia (country) and Georgia (U.S. state) are entirely different places which have the same name out of pure coincidence. However, the Kingdom of France in 848 and the Kingdom of France in 1848 were not two different places; they were different historical periods and different forms of government for the same country. The connection between the two periods is not merely coincidence; it is a long, involved historical connection. This title should be a redirect to History of France, which provides a summary of the historical development of the state as well as links to detailed articles on particular periods. --Russ (talk) 16:16, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Corsica did not become part of Kingdom of France in 1768. In this date Genoa handed over the military power over the island to France in order to stamp out the Corsican patriots. Thanks to the Treaty of Versaille France get the administration control over the Corsica and supported Genoa with his army and money; Genoa got a loan from France using Corsica as a gage. When Genoa tried to honor her debt, the Revolution had already started in France and in 1789 the National Assembly stated one-sidedness that « la Corse fait partie de la France » (Corsica is part of France). So, from a French point of view, Corsica became part of France in 1789. The other powers acknowledged France ownership even later. UK for example staunchly supported the Corsican patriots.
