The French language belongs to the group of romance languages like Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, etc. Post Roman Gaul, French was one of the many tongues descended from Latin that was spoken in various parts. The Provençal language was popular at that time, mainly expressed in the southern half of what is today metropolitan France.
In 1539, King Francis-I made French the official language of administration and court proceedings in France, replacing Latin as the official written language of the country. Following a period of unification, regulation, purification, and standardization, the language spoken in the 17th-18th centuries (sometimes referred to as classic French) became the basis of modern French from the 17th century to today.
