À quoi ça sert ? Ça veut dire quoi ça ? Pourquoi c'est comme ça ?

Est-ce vrai que les Français descendent des Gaulois ?
Is it true that the French are descended from the Gauls?
Jusqu'au milieu du 20e siècle, les manuels d'histoire disaient que les Gaulois étaient les ancêtres des Français.
Until the middle of the 20th century, history textbooks said that the Gauls were the ancestors of the French.
Ils étaient les habitants d'un territoire appelé la Gaule qui couvrait la France actuelle, mais aussi la Belgique, les Pays-Bas, une partie de l'Allemagne, de la Suisse et de l'Espagne.
They were the inhabitants of a territory called Gaul that covered the present France, but also Belgium, the Netherlands, part of Germany, Switzerland and Spain.
Le nom de la Gaule avait été donné par l'empereur romain Jules César quand il avait conquis ce territoire il y a 2000 ans.
The name of Gaul had been given by Roman emperor Julius Caesar when he had conquered this territory 2000 years ago.
Cette histoire a été reprise dans la célèbre bande dessinée Astérix.
This story was taken up in the famous comic book Asterix.
En réalité, les Gaulois n'étaient pas un peuple mais un ensemble de peuples qui étaient parfois ennemis.
In reality, the Gauls were not a people but a group of peoples who were sometimes enemies.
Il y avait notamment les Éduens, les Carnutes ou les Arvernes.
There were the Eduans, the Carnutes, and the Arvernes.
Le roi des Arvernes était Vercingétorix qui tenta d'unir certains peuples gaulois pour résister à Jules César.
The king of the Arvernes was Vercingetorix, who tried to unite some Gallic peoples to resist Julius Caesar.
Aujourd'hui, certains Français sont bien les descendants des peuples gaulois.
Today, some Frenchmen are indeed the descendants of the Gallic peoples.
Mais d'autres ont des ancêtres qui viennent d'Afrique, d'Asie ou d'autres parties de l'Europe.
But others have ancestors who come from Africa, Asia or other parts of Europe.
Un quart des Français ont ainsi au moins un grand-parent venu d'un pays étranger pour vivre en France.
A quarter of the French have at least one grandparent who came from a foreign country to live in France.
Par exemple dans les années 1950 la France a accueilli des centaines de milliers de familles marocaines, algériennes et tunisiennes.
For example, in the 1950s France welcomed hundreds of thousands of Moroccan, Algerian and Tunisian families.
La plupart des enfants ou des petits-enfants de ces familles sont devenus français.
Most of the children or grandchildren of these families became French.
Comme tous les pays du monde, la France est donc composée d'habitants qui ont des ancêtres différents.
Like all the countries of the world, France is therefore composed of inhabitants who have different ancestors.
