France was known by what name in ancient times?

France was called Gallia, which meant Gaul, because it was inhabited by the Gauls. Gallia also included Belgium ad Luxembourg. The First part which was conquered by the Romans was southern France, which they originally called Gallia Transalpina (Gaul the other side of the Alps) to distinguish it from Gallia Cisalpina, which was the part of northern Italy which was also inhabited by Gauls. When it was turned into a Roman province it was also called Gallia Narbonensis, after its provincial capital, Narbo (Narbonne). The Julius Caesar conquered the rest of Gaul and joined Gallia Cisalpina to Italy. The Transalpina and Cisalpina distinction became redundant. Gaul was divided into four provinces: Gallia Narbonenisis, Gallia Aquitania (south-western France), Gallia Lugdunensis (central France,and part of northern France) and Gallia Belgica (Belgium and part of northern France).

When did the Northern Territory become a colony of Australia?

The Northern Territory was never a colony of Australia. The Northern Territory was founded under the name of "Northern Territory" in 1911, which is when it was separated from South Australia and transferred to Commonwealth control. From 1825 to 1863, the Northern Territory was part of New South Wales, and from 1863 to 1911 it was part of South Australia, at neither time being a separate territory or colony - though there was the outpost of Port Essington on the northern coast. On 1 January 1911, the Northern Territory was removed from South Australia's rule and transferred to Commonwealth control.
