Just the name given to the site by one of the first European explorers there, I think he was Italian if I remember correct.

It was Plantagenet Dinasty against Capétiens Dinasty, it was France against France. This is the reality, we're not on a "Hollywood movie forum", we are on Skyscrapercity.

If you want to respect the Lionheart King, the Tomb is closed to the Plantagenet historic Capital (Fontevraud, Anjou) so far to the Great and lovely city of London.

I stop that...
Richard never spoke english. He spoke french and was called "the absent king" by his english subjects ( spent only 6 months of his life on english soil, I can understand that feeling..).
English people love to speak about Waterloo. And always skip mentioning the crucial prussian flankattack.
Collective amnesia.

Is there a country on earth that france hasn't been thrown out of by Britain, relegated to second rate status still hurts huh, oh what could have been if it weren't for those damn brits, it's time for france to get over it, you lost, move on, they made the world, while you just had to watch, from the few places on earth they let you keep, and now you discuss it online in their language, before the final indignity of having to be saved, by them, from the nazis, ouch.
