I know that France ruled in Pondichéri and Portugal in Goa.

France had Guyane in South America, Réunion, Europe, Saint Paul and New Amsterdam in Indian Ocean, Saint Pierre et Miquélon near Canada, Martinique, northern Saint Maartens, Guadéloupe in Atlantic Ocean, Clipperton, French Polynesia and New Caledonia in Pacific Ocean.
