Paris HistoryParis France History - In the beginning Paris was conquered by Julius Caesar in 52 BC. Through the years of 1355 - 58 the people of Paris first became independent under Etienne Marcel. They worked well and prospered under his leadership. For many years Paris was able to hold onto its own.

Then came the year of 1789 and the storming of Bastille and the French Revolution.

During World War I Germans were not permitted in the city, but by World War II in the years 1940 to 1933 the Germans occupied the city. Again the city struggled.
