# France, the extensive colonizer of what would later become Canada, Louisiana and the Caribbean, was both a formidable foe to the British, and a trusted ally to a number of native cultures.
# Bonus: Instead of starting with typical Settlers, the French instead get Coureurs, an expensive but powerful villager limited to 80. They ally with the Natives easier, getting several unique Native cards, technologies, and bonuses.
# Unique Units: Coureur des Bois (unique settler), Cuirassier (heavy cavalry), Native Scout (scout)
# Royal Guard: Voltigeur (Skirmisher)
