Why Are French People Called Frogs?

Answer

Back in the day the French under the rule of the Charlemagne Empire tried to take over the country that is now England. The flag of this army depicted a coat of arms that had frogs on it. This happened around the 800's, but people in England still call the French the slang term: frogs.
