    Hi, sounds ridiculous but I could not remember today how to write an historic date out in full in French, for example

    'in seventeen hundred and sixty three'

    should it be

    'dans l'annee dix sept cent soixante trois'

    Hello,

    C'est "en mille sept cent soixante trois" as Johanne said.

    I could write "en dix sept cent soixante trois", it's fine by me but used solely for dates (written or spoken).

    Cheers
