French itself is not more "romantic" than any other language in the world. All depends on the image or stereotypes that you link with one language. It seems that in many countries the people link Frenchness with romanticism (image of old towns in France are advertised as "romantic" in most touristic medias). So, people tend to associate "french" with the concept of "romantism". Outside of this, there is the fact that french is part of the latin-based languages, also called "romance languages" (like Italian, Spanish or Portuguese), that is to say a language that comes from latin, the language of Rome. This has nothing to see with the concept of romanticism, but many people may confuse because the words "romance" and "romantic" sound similar.

Most of France, and regions of eastern Spain were some of the first lands in which the "French" we know today was developed. These are the only two regions I know of, and to be fair, the french they spoke in the early days of "French" was just a different dialect of Latin. French, Italian, Spanish and Portugese came from the Latin language, which itself is a Romantic language. These languages were influenced by other, older languages, particularly semitic languages such as Arabic.
