Ecole Militaire (Military School)

The Royal Military Academy was founded by Louis XV in 1751, with the help of Madame de Pompadour and the financier Duverney. Its objective was to make poor gentlemen into military men. Napoleon Bonaparte was trained here in 1784. The architect of the building, constructed in 1752, is Gabriel. The chapel where Napoleon graduated was not completed until 1769. (pariserve.tm.fr)
