How did France become a republic?

A republic is a government in which voters hold sovereign power. Elected representatives are elected by the people and the representatives are responsible to the voters who elected them. The Constitution of the United States created a form of government known as a republic. It also created the system known as federalism. The Founding Fathers established the House of Representatives as the only representative body in the original first government under the Constitution. With the passage of time, the entire legislative body and the executive became responsible to the voters who elected them. The national and state governments each has specific powers and functions while also sharing some of the same powers. The Constitution made the agreement and any laws passed under the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. Three separate branches were created, the legislative, executive, and judicial. Each branch had specific powers while also having the ability to check the powers of the other two branches. The national government was given the power to tax and to enforce its laws. It created a judicial system in which the Supreme Court of the United States would have the final say as to the constitutionality of laws. A system of checks and balances tied the three branches of government together under the Constitution and the legislature became a truly representative body representing the people. An important feature of the Constitution was that it could be amended to change with the times.

When did France become an enemy of England?

That would be 1066 when William (the Conqueror) of Normandy invaded (and conquered) England. Initially this meant that the King of France received taxes from England but it also meant that England ruled Normandy. But through marriages the King of England (this is 100s of years later) ended up ruling half of France. This meant the two countries started contesting for power.When, finally, England was ousted from France after the Hundred Years War it wasn't long before they had something else to fight about. In 1492 Cristopher Columbus returned from his voyage to the New World with stories of a land rich in gold and precious minerals. England, France and Spain leapt at the chance of riches and new lands and all three fought each other for power for hundreds of years.When all of that calmed down it was time for a Corsican by the name of Napoleon Boneparte to bring his ideas for France. This meant conquering most of Europe with only Spain, Portugal and the UK standing against him.For some reason after that England and France were relatively friendly with each other.The answer to your question is 1066 but I thought a history of English-French wars might be useful to you.
