The current French Republic (the Fifth) was established in 1958; replacing the Fourth Republic, established 1946; replacing a provisional government; which replaced both the Free French and Vichy France; who superseded the Third Republic, established 1870; after the fall of the Second French Empire. And there's a few more monarchies and another Empire to go through before getting to the First French Republic (1794-1804), which is probably the source of "over two hundred years".
