Actually, it's a pretty good question. Ignore these ignorant people who clearly do not have a brain cell to share between them.
French is a romance language derived from Latin. Gaius Julius Caesar, a Roman (the speakers of Latin), conquered Gaul (modern day France) in the mid 1st century BCE. The region became Romanticized and it, like Spain, began speaking Latin which developed dialectical differences and eventually became a separate language, in part because of the influence of the substrait Gaullish language being spoken at the time. Because of Germanic invasions during the decline of the Roman Empire (aprox.) in the 6th century CE and onward. French was heavily influenced syntacticly and borrowed vocabulary from Germanic, but prevailed. A language we identify as Old French has been attested since the 9th century CE. Thus France speaks French as a result.
