Fruk motivator by Lady--knight Fruk motivator by Lady--knight
L'Entente Cordiale (agreement signed on 8 April 1904 between the United Kingdom and the French Republic) inspirated drawings like these, mostly with Marianne (France) and Britannia (UK) .

But sometimes it was Marianne with John Bull (snarking Prussian Emperor on the original second illustration, that was one of the main agreement reasons at first).

Edit : and I could add a few!



France was always a freakin' girl, even in royal days before Marianne's apparition.No difference between government and people, like Britannia and John Bull.Marianne is both.Her male counterpart, Jacques Bonhomme, once existed but soon forgotten.

And that's why it was always pictured as a lady.I was quite surprised when I discovered that France was male in Hetalia, but it's a bishonen ghetto after all.

I support Fruk, being an history nerd and an anglophile french.Just imagine the same with Arthur and Fem!Francis (Françoise, in Nyotalia.I've told you France is supposed to be female.)....Well it last since more than a century....

I imagine these two coexist in the Hetalia Universe and act as a sort of aunt or uncle figure to Francis and Arthur.

Whohooo! :w00t:
Even before Hetalia I'd always picture the countries England and France as fighting lovers

Tellement vrai XD

L'Angleterre et la France ont une histoire qui dure depuis plus de 1000 ans, avec toutes les anecdotes, rivalités, guerres, invasions, découvertes, etc....

Avec une dispute d'héritage (qui mena à la guerre de Cent Ans), un PACS (l'Entente Cordiale), deux demandes en mariage (1940 et 1962), et des disputes de famille régulière (avec l'UE, les USA...)

Comment ne pas soutenir le FrUk après ça XD?
