On the one hand you overlooked several French succeses, on the other hand you gave one to them they don't deserve. Charlemagne or Charles the Great wasn't french, he was a Frank, Franks were a group of germanic tribes that started out in an area surrounding the Rhine. From a modern point of view they are just as much Belgian, German and (I think) netherlandic as they are French. Charlemagnes empire itself is seen as the foundation of both modern French and modern germany and in a way also the modern benelux states. In that regard too, he's not (only partially) french.
Also he was an asshole^^
