  1. Francophile

    A Francophile is an individual who has a strong positive predisposition or interest toward the government, culture, history, or people of France. This could include France itself or its history, the French language, French cuisine, literature, etc. The opposite of a Francophile is a Francophobe – someone who dislikes all that is French. Francophilia often arises in former French colonies where the elite spoke French and adopted many French habits. In other European countries such as România and partly Bulgaria, French culture has also long been popular among the educated classes. Historically, Francophilia has been associated with supporters of the philosophy of Enlightenment during and after the French Revolution, where democratic uprisings challenged the autocratic regimes of Europe.
