The first capital of the french s territory was Lyon (Lugdunum).The priest of Lyon is called until today "Primat des Gaules".The romans occupied it easily.
The story of Lutecia has been invented.At the "gallo-romain" period, the island of the city was a village like at the "chasseens period", full of mosquitoes,like Bercy,with little boats,darts etc..discovered during the construction of the music palace.The biggest town of the Isle of France,at the moment of the roman conquest was Nanterre (streets,market etc.…).The merovingians and the carolingians have never considered Paris as their unic political center.
The Capet transform the city of the "parisis"(gaellic population mixed with romans and franks) progressively.But during the war of 100 years,the capital of the Valois was Bourges,in the center.

If the island of the city would have been important,the political autorities would have built fortifications.....The problem is that the archeological investigations under the prefecture of police have discovered Nothing.Do you know in the story of the world a capital which was an open space ? On another way the fortifications of Philippe August and Charles V are incontestable (the two wars of 100 years).I think that the island of the city was like the four other islands disappeared:from east to west:Javiaux,Cows,Notre Dame,Island of the city,the Jews,a little archipel of the yellow fever (paludism) dangerous for everybody.Perhaps the island would have been utilised as cimetary,just near the primitive church,like the territory of the Louvre near the church Saint Eustache.

The story of the Sainte Genevieve mountain (61 meters of altitude,hum…..)is completely different.The archeological investigations have done very good results:everything is roman,or sometimes with a greek influence.If it was a capital,the romans are the precursors (oppidum,theather,circus,bath).Everything is situated on the left river.Naturally,the legend is present:Sainte Genevieve would have defeated the famous Huns...perhaps was she the sister of Astérix.

Hugh Capet is generally considered the first king of France. He was born in Paris and had the title Count of Paris before being crowned King of France. Because much of France later came under English rule its hard to trace the status of Paris. In Joan of Arc's time French kings were crowed in Reims. At least from the time of Francis I believe the capital remained in Paris.

I agree, and Hugh Capet was the first king to speak French
