Texas was a country between 1836 (independence from Mexico) and 1845 (entered United States).
France was one of the few nations to grant semi-official recognition of Texas on September 25, 1839. In 1841 The French opened a legation which still stands in Austin, (a few miles from the site of the current Texas Capitol building), and Texas in turn opened an embassy in Paris. France had wanted to set up a consulate general in Washington-on-the-Brazos and a consulate in Houston as well.
