|Pied: Old French (Paris) measurement equivalent to the English foot. 1 pied equals 0.3248 meter or 1.066 ft. The old French equivalent to the English inch was a pouce, and since 1 pied equals 12 pouces; 1 pouce would be 1.066 inch or 0.02707 meter. Apparently French feet used to be slightly larger than English feet.|
