The Ancient Olympic Games began in 776 BC in Olympia, Greece.

The first significant attempt to emulate the ancient Olympic games was the nationwide L'Olympiade de la République, an Olympic festival held annually, from 1796 to 1798, in Revolutionary France.

The first Olympic Games of the modern times was held in 1896.
