French was the official language of England for over 600 years.


After the Norman conquest of England, the French language became the language of the nobles. Law French was the offical language of justice and the court right up to the 18th century. The motto on the coat of arms of Great Britain, God and my right (Dieu et mon droit), is written in French and some phrases are still in use in the Parliament of Great Britain today.
