Charles Martel reigned 718 to 741. He was Charlemagne's grandfather. The territory he reigned did not include all of France.
Charlemagne reigned in the late 700's AD; although his territory may or may not be considered "France". It actually included area in modern Germany and Italy but did not include southwestern France.
Charlemagne's grandson Charles the Bald is consider the first true king of France when his father, Louis the Pious, divided the kingdom into what would become France and Germany. (and, the Netherlands much later.) He was crowned Emperor in 875AD.

The monarchy ruled France until the French Revolution, in 1789. King Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette, were executed, along with thousands of other French citizens. After a series of short-lived governmental schemes, Napoleon Bonaparte seized control of the Republic in 1799, making himself First Consul, and later Emperor of what is now known as the First French Empire (1804–1814). In the course of several wars, his armies conquered most of continental Europe, with members of the Bonaparte family being appointed as monarchs of newly established kingdoms.
