General and President de Gaulle birthplace
Northwest of the old city and slightly north of the Citadel is the birthpace of the late President de Gaulle (whom the large international airport in Roissy is named after - many people know it as Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris). It's at 9, rue Princesse . Not all guidebooks mention this house. It has a few exhibits and an old car with bullet holes from a failed assassination attempt.
BIRTHPLACE OF GENERAL DE GAULLE
Now a museum, the house where De Gaulle was born is situated in rue Princesse number 9. He was born here in 1890 and was president of the French Republic from 1959-1968. He is famous for his call to resist Nazi occupation in 1940 and for founding the Fifth Republic. He died in 1970.
