Paris is the capital and largest city of France.

As part of a 1961 nation-wide administrative effort to consolidate regional economies, Paris as a département became the capital of the new région of the District of Paris, renamed the Île-de-France région in 1976 as its shown in the Capital of France map. It encompasses the Paris département and its seven closest départements. Its regional council members, since 1986, have been chosen by direct elections.
Paris lost its position as seat of the French realm during the occupation by the English-allied Burgundians during the Hundred Years War, but regained its title when Charles VII of France reclaimed the city from English rule in 1436 (see the Capital of France map). Paris from then on became France capital once again in title, but France real centre of power would remain in the Loire Valley until King Francis I returned France crown residences to Paris in 1528.
