Address 78 Rue de la Folie-Regnault 75011 Paris, France

Named after Régnault de Wandonne, a rich 14th century Parisian merchant, rue de la Folie-Régnault is a historic artery of the capital.

It was on these lands that the merchant built his country house in 1396. This domain, then called La Folie-Régnault, became in 1626 the property of the Jesuits. Little by little, Paris grew and the rue de la Folie-Régnault was then called “rue des Murs-de-la-Roquette”. Its right-angled layout has persisted to the present day. Between 1851 and 1899, the guillotine was stored not far from 78, at number 60. It is also on these lands that François d’Aix de La Chaise, confessor of King Louis XIV, lived and later gave his name to the famous Père-Lachaise cemetery.
