The Place du General Valhubert square in Paris received its name by a formal decree made by Napoleon Bonaparte I on the 14th February 1806, which was done in order to honour a military general called General Jean-Marie Valhubert who had died a few months earlier during the Battle of Austerlitz.

As we had just crossed over the River Seine via the Pont d'Austerlitz, we took this photograph of the Place Valhubert, and this square borders both the 5th and 13th Arrondissements of Paris, which means that many places choose one or the other for its address.
