I read in some books that France had a small colony in India: Pondichéri.

Hi Kninjanin,

Well I did not even know about the Principality of Andorra...did not know that Macron was a co-prince there...so I will just keep coming to SOLVED, and learn more here, I hope!

Here is what I gleaned from Wikipedia, it is quite fascinating I thought:

"...the Principality of Andorra, a landlocked microstate lying in the Pyrenees between France and Spain. Founded in 1278 by means of a treaty between the bishop of Urgell and the Count of Foix, this unique diarchical arrangement has persisted through medieval times to the 21st century. Currently, the bishop of Urgell (Joan Enric Vives Sicília) and the president of France (Emmanuel Macron) serve as Andorra's co-princes..."

It is a personal union between a republic and monarchy. Although France became republic in 1871, its presidents are monarchs.

Bourbons became counts of Foix and kings of France and made a chief of state of France a prince of Andorra.

Have you visited Andorra, Kninjanin? It is in the Pyrenees, it might be quite beautiful? And fascinating also, nestled for all these many centuries between the rich history and culture of France and Spain...
