La Trémoille, a legendary Paris hotel since 1883
June 17th, 2009
Famous Focal Point for the Paris Jazz Scene in the 1960's
Courageous and loyal, he commanded the armies of Charles VIII, Louis XII and François I, re-established civil peace in the kingdom, prepared the union of Brittany with France and covered himself in glory during the wars in Italy. His valour was rewarded with the titles of Lieutenant General of Poitou, of Angoumois and of the Marches of Brittany, as well as governor of Burgundy and Admiral of Guyenne and Brittany.
A great leader, he was also a skilful diplomat saving Burgundy from Swiss pillage thanks to his eloquence virtues.
Once more under the 'Cavalier King', he shone against the Swiss during the battle of Marignan in 1515, brought peace to Normandy and fortified it before failing gloriously on the field of the battle of Pavie, where François I lost everything 'save honour'.
The body of the 'Perfect Knight' 'Glory of his House' and 'Honour of his Time' was laid to rest at Thouars, in Poitou.
Rue de La Trémoille owes some of its prestige to this highly respected knight. The street was named in his honour and memory by the city of Paris.
