La Marseillaise" (English: "The Song from Marseille"; French pronunciation: ​) is the national anthem of France. The song, originally titled "Chant de guerre pour l’Armée du Rhin" (English: "War Song for the Army of the Rhine") was written and composed by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle in 1792. The French National Convention adopted it as the Republic’s anthem in 1795. The name of the song is due to first being sung on the streets by volunteers from Marseille.

The song’s lyrics reflect the invasion of France by foreign armies (from Prussia and Austria) which was ongoing when it was written; Strasbourg itself was attacked just a few days later. The invading forces were repulsed from France following their defeat in the Battle of Valmy.
