France is a Kingdom in Western Europe during the Renaissance. Ruled by the House of Valois, it is one of the most powerful European states. France's King Francis acts as a foil to England's King Henry VIII throughout the series; they are sometimes friends, while at others they are enemies. However, France is more often at war with Spain and the Holy Roman Empire (both ruled by the Habsburg Emperor Charles V) over their claims to the Duchy of Birgundy and several minor territories in Italy.
