What was in France before it was France?
France was previously called ''West Francia'' and prior to that ''Gaul''.
That will depend on the time of day. The next day starts in Japan before it starts in France. Japan is 8 hours ahead of France. So up until 4pm in France, it is the same day in Japan and France. If it is Monday in Japan and before 8am, then it is Sunday in France. After 8am on Monday in Japan, it is also Monday in France.
