Café Histoire: the Auld Alliance

Monday 12 January 2015 17:30-19:00

The Auld Alliance : une histoire des relations franco-écossaises

The “Oldest Alliance in the world”: that’s how the general de Gaulle described the alliance between the Kingdoms of France, Norway and Scotland in 1942. From 1295 to 1903, the Franco-Scottish relations were based on this Auld Alliance and the links between the two countries remain very strong nowadays. Patrick Landri tells us more about this enduring relationship.
