Transcript of The Gallic Wars and France

France and the Gallic Wars Edited, compiled, and
conceived by: Will Schmidt However, many of the Helvetti were
soon killed in The Battle of Bibracte. Capture The Revolts Aftermath Aftermath cont. Several revolts from angry tribes occured
in the following years, but Gaul was held until related tribes invaded edges of the Roman Empire, nearly 400 years later. The Gallic Wars had many after
effects, but a major one of them was the formation of the language we now know as French. The Roman occupation later caused French to have many new words and dialects, all based off of the languages
of the tribes and the Latin words
brought in by the Roman invaders. But the Belgae fell as well. Ariovistus The Belgae After Ariovistus' defeat, a group
of tribes collectively known as the Belgae were next on the list. Apart

the Remi, who worked with Rome,
over 300,000 Belgae were prepared
to fight France. References http://www.easybib.com

Ariovistus and his army, a major target for
the Roman army. His forces lost the battle against the Romans, and any stragglers fled across the Rhine River. Now, almost all of Gaul, which is now
France, was captured by Rome.
Over 8 major tribes were captured
or killed in war. La Guerre des Gaules et de la France
