Save the dates ! 17th September

What happened today in France?

The Treaty of Bergerac

Protestants and Catholics signed the Treaty of Bergerac to end the sixth War of Religion (don’t know why but in today’s context I still feel that nothing has changed, a religious War is starting internationally). This was triggered by the Catholic League, which managed to convince the king to cancel the Edict of Beaulieu ( = which was signed in Beaulieu-lès-Loches by Henry III of France, ending the fifth war of religion the 6th of May 157) recognising the Protestant worship and granting numerous safeguards for them to practice their religion.

Defeated at the Battles of the Charité-sur-Loire and Issoire, the Protestants have no other choice but to sign a treaty significantly reducing the benefits they earned by the Edict of Beaulieu.

Later in October, the treaty will be confirmed by the Edict of Poitiers.

Let’s end with something a bit more cheerful 🙂

First Mc Do in France

Under the curious gaze of the Alsatian, the first McDonalds opened the 17th September 1979 in Strasbourg. Why Strasbourg and not Paris? Don’t know really? Anyway, it worked so well ever since that Mc Do (as we call it in France) founded in 1955 in the United States, has more than one thousand restaurants in France.

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
