Karl Martin Posted April 6, 2010 Report Share Posted April 6, 2010 The pleasant voice of Agnès Noblesse, main announcer of Bourgogne Info, comes online for the first time since the fall of the French Republic. "The results of the referendum concerning the establishment of the Kingdom of France has come out today. 76% of the population has voted for Henri VII being the King of France. The main opposition has come from the Kingdom of Normaundie and the Burgund region of Lothringen. Many foreign countries were surprised at the results, saying that it is strange for a German nation to suddenly become French. However, this opinion is based on the incorrect assumption that Burgundy was German to begin with. Although it is true that those of Germanic descent are about 30% of the total population, most of them feel closer to France than to Germany, given how they have lived in the Grand Nation for so long. Only the people in the region of Lothringem, composed of Walloonia and Lorraine, are strictly Germans, and they are the ones opposing the new King. In the case of Normaundie, they are afraid of losing their unique culture, having once faced brutal assimilation attempts by the French Republic. However, the majority of the citizens welcome the return of the French Monarchy. With Aquitaine claiming to be the true France, many people in Paris are extremely upset with the situation. There has been calls for a second [i]Guerre de Cent Ans[/i] to reclaim the mandate to the Grand Nation. However, former President Karl Martin von Hohenzollern called for calmness, saying "By acting rash, we are only falling into the trap that our enemies have set out for us." The coronation ceremony will be held at Notre-Dame de Reims on Thrusday." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
