Founded by Louis XV in 1750, l'École Militaire occupies a strategic location facing Champs de Mars and the Eiffel Tower. This military academy was built with the purpose of turning poor men into army officers and graduated many historic characters, the most famous of whom is Napoléon Bonaparte. L'École Militaire continues to be a military educational establishment to this day.
