Vichy France was the puppet government installed by Nazi Germany to adminster France following their invasion and occupation in World War II. In fact Vichy only administered the southern part of France, and never had control of Paris itself, which the Nazis kept directly for themselves.

2018-10-30 Rerun commentary: I'm amused by "Herr Julius Caesar".

I didn't know much about Julius Caesar's family before doing a bit of research just now. It turns out Julius had two sisters, named Julia and Julia. This sounds a bit uncreative on the part of their parents, but apparently Roman naming conventions were rather different from our own. Julia/Julius was actually a kind of family name, used by many members of the family.

I have an account on Deutsche Bahn's web site, for use when purchasing train tickets in Germany. (I've used it a grand total of twice, having only travelled there twice in the past 20 years.)

According to Deutsche Bahn, my name is Herr Mrmorganmar. I suppose if I were to have two daughters, I'd have to name them Mrmorganmaria and Mrmorganmaria.
