I'm far from being an expert in Engish's etimology, but with a little
help of a dictionary, It seems that the English word "licence" comes
from the word "licence" which appeared in the French language in the
When it crossed the Channel, the noun "licence" was kept unchanged, but
strangely enough, the verb made out of it became "to license". Some time
later, when both words crossed the Atlantic, some kind of simplification
was made and both noun and verb became spelled the same way.
Thus "the licence" is UK English, "the license" is US English.
