French Argentine

A French Argentine is an Argentine citizen of full or partial French ancestry. French Argentines form the third largest ancestry group after Italian Argentines and Spanish Argentines. Between 1857 and 1946, 261,020 French people immigrated to Argentina.

Today around 6.8 million Argentines have some degree of French ancestry (up to 17% of the total population).

While Argentines of French descent make up a substantial percent of the Argentine population, they are less visible than other similarly-sized ethnic groups. This is due to the high degree of assimilation and the lack of substantial French colonies throughout the country.
