France is one of the known Civilizations in Civilization VI.

In Civilization 6, each Civilization has two Abilities. One is based on what the nation has done throughout history and the other is tailored to what happened during the ruler's reign. Catherine de Medici leads the French Civ in Sid Meier's Civilization VI. She was the most powerful European queen of the 16th century. She was skilled in statecraft, diplomacy and especially espionage. Her efforts to secure the crown for her family laid the groundwork for a central French state.

France's Special Ability Grand Tour gives them a bonus when constructing mid-game Wonders and extra Icon Tourism.png Tourism from all the wonders they construct. The Garde Impériale are the French Unique Unit. They get a bonus for fighting on the starting capital's home continent and Great General Points from kills.

France also gets the Chateau as a Unique Tile Improvement. It must be built adjacent to a River and provides Icon Culture.png Culture with special bonuses for being near Wonders.

What Catherine specializes in is Espionage. By using her network of Ladies-In-Waiting (Catherine's flying squadron) she gets extra diplomatic information from every Civ she meets. Once you Research Castles she'll receive an extra spy.

France is a good choice for the Icon Culture.png Culture focused player. Egypt and China might focus on building early game Wonders but in mid-game France can easily catch up in the Wonder race. Once their Unique Abilities and Improvements are in play, they can quickly race up the Civics Tree and establish a strong Industrial Era army or go for a Cultural Victory. Regardless of whether you go for war or peace France will stay well informed about what's going on in the world thanks to their excellent Espionage.

Are you ready to show the world the glory of La Belle France? How will you lead the French in Sid Meier's Civilization VI?
