Général de Gaulle



November 22nd, 1890 - November 9th, 1970

French statesman and first president of the 5th Republic from 1959 to 1969

 

In the aftermath of the Second World War, during which he organized the Free French Forces, General de Gaulle laid down the foundations of the Fifth Republic.

Following his departure for London in June 1940, he was recognized by the British as the leader of the Free French movement that fought the Vichy regime and the German and Italian occupation of France during the Second World War.

President of the provisional government of the French Republic from 1944 to 1946, De Gaulle was the main instigator of the founding of the Fifth Republic, and its first President from 1959 to 1969.

A number of models of General De Gaulle were set up in the Grévin over the years… he was portrayed at least five times. But his last appearance goes back many years, since only Presidents in office are represented. However, following a great number of requests, the Museum has decided to bring him back to life.
