The word France is derived from the Latin word Francia. It means land of the Franks or Frank land. After the fall of the Roman Empire, a lot of different barbarian tribes fought over Gaul (ancient name of France), the ones that wiped all the other out were the Franks, a Germanic tribe and their king Clovis.
