So I want to create a titlepage for my document and I would like to print the last date of compilation on it but I can't seem to be able to. I've found people with similar problem but somehow haven't been able to make the solutions work for me.

here is my code


    \textbf{Thesis Title}

    Thesis Subtitle


    \textbf{Author Name}


    A thesis presented for the degree of\\
    Doctor of Philosophy


    Department Name\\
    University Name\\


I have tried to use the titling package but it prints the date in english and I want it in french.
