Histoire de Paris

Lycée Charlemagne
En 1580, le cardinal Charles de Bourbon offrit aux Jésuites l’hôtel de La Rochepot qui devint leur maison de profès, dite couvent des Grands Jésuites. Ils l’embellirent et l’agrandirent progressivement jusqu’à la rue de Jouy, aujourd’hui Charlemagne. Le 6 août 1762, le Parlement de Paris prononça l’expulsion de cet ordre, et la maison fut attribuée aux Génovéfains du prieuré voisin de Sainte-Catherine-du-Va-de-Ecoliers,

History of Paris

Charlemagne high school
In 1580, Cardinal Charles de Bourbon offered the Jesuits the Hôtel de La Rochepot, which became their professed house, known as the convent of the Great Jesuits. They embellished it and gradually extended it to rue de Jouy, now Charlemagne. On August 6, 1762, the Parliament of Paris pronounced the expulsion of this order, and the house was attributed to the Génovéfains of the neighboring priory of Sainte-Catherine-du-Va-de-Ecoliers,

established on the other side of rue Saint-Antoine. On October 22, 1797, one of the three central schools of Paris was installed there; in October 1804 it became the Lycée Charlemagne.
