(Porte de la Conference)

— Histoire de Paris —

La porte de la Conf?rence marque la limite ouest de Paris jusqu'a la veille de la R?volution. En 1593, lors du si?ge de Paris par Henri IV redevenu huguenot, les Ligueurs utilisent cette sortie pour se rendre ? Suresnes n?gocier avec les reprentants du roi. A la suite de cette Conf?rence, le monarque abjure d?finitivement le protestantisme: "Paris vaut bien une messe!". La paix revenue, Marie de Medicis fait am?nager le quai, qui prend le nom de "Cours-la-Reyne". Sous la Fronde en 1649. Anne d'Autriche s'enfuit du Louvre par cette porte avec Louis XIV ?g? de 11 ans, pour se r?fugier ? St Germain-en-Laye. Au moment de la construction du Mur des Fermiers g?n?raux en 1785, une partie de Chaillot est rattach?e ? Paris, et la Porte d?plac?e en aval vers Passy, ? la hauteur de l'actuelle rue Beethoven. Aujourd'hui, le quai de la Conf?rence au pied de l'Alma rappelle aux Parisiens la conversion du plus populaire de ses rois.

Porte de la Conference
The gate of the Conference marks the western boundary of Paris until the eve of the Revolution. In 1593, during the siege of Paris by Henri IV once again become a Huguenot, the Leaguers use this outlet to get to Suresnes negotiate with the representatives of the king. Following this conference, the monarch finally recanted Protestantism: "Paris is worth a mass". When peace returned, Marie de Medicis installed the dock which took the name of "Cours la Reyne." Under the Fronde in 1649. Anne of Austria fled from the Louvre through this gate with Louis XIV aged 11, and took refuge in St Germain-en-Laye. At the time of construction of the Wall of the Farmers-General in 1785 a part of Chaillot was attached to Paris, and the Gate was moved downstream to Passy, at the foot of the current rue Beethoven. Today, the quay of the Conference at the foot of Alma remind Parisians ot the conversion of the most popular of its kings.
