The French Empire was a worldwide system of dependencies under the sovereignty of the crown of France. It began in France followed by the conquest over the rest of the Europe. The empire's capital was in Paris. At its height in the late 19th and early 20th centuries it was one of the largest empire in history. Trade ties with nations outside of its sovereignty reinforced its global dominance.
The French Empire constituted the overseas colonies, protectorates and mandate territories that came under French rule from the 16th century onward.
In the early 1700's, the French sorcerer Mauvais arrived in Canada in search of the Wendigo to gain its powers. He was stopped by the combined efforts of the Gods of the North and the Sorcerer Supreme of the day. He was locked immobile. As Canada was French territory at the time, he was imprisoned in a renowned French prison known as the La prison de la Morte.
