The Common Assembly (Francien: L'Assemblée Commune) is the lower house of the Parliament of the Crown of France. Like the upper house, the National Senate, it convenes in the Palace of Savoy in Bordeaux.

The Common Assembly is an elected body consisting of 1250 members known as Members of Parliament (MPs). Members are elected to represent constituencies by proportional-representative vote and hold their seats until Parliament is dissolved.

Historically, the preceding legislative body to the Common Assembly partly exists in the form of the House of Commons in Britannia, itself a continuation of the House of Commons that existed in the Parliament of the Kingdom of England during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. However, due to the size and power of the Crown of France, the Common Assembly was built incorporating more universal ideas. It was so-named the Chamber of the Commons of the Angevin Crown upon its creation in 1606, and was renamed the Common Assembly of the Imperial Parliament upon the pronuncement of Henry X as Emperor in 1788. With the empire's dissolution in the mid-nineteenth century, it adopted the name it still holds today: The Honourable the Common Assembly in Service of the Crown of France (Francien: L'honorable Assemblée Commune au service de la Couronne de France).

As per the Lord's Submission Act 1958, the Common Assembly has wider control over the Government. The prime-minister remains in power so-long as he retains a majority in the Common Assembly.
