Elevate East German city over the French (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ennoble

(Other definitions for ennoble that I've seen before include "Distinguish", "Elevate to knighthood", "Give rank or title to (someone)", "Aggrandise", "Glorify - confer honour upon".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
