Le Peletier (Paris Métro)

Le Peletier (French pronunciation: ​[lə pɛltje]) is a station on Line 7 of the Paris Métro. Located in the 9th arrondissement, it was opened in 1910. It is named in reference to Rue le Peletier, which was named after Louis Peletier, who was the last but one Prévôt des marchands de Paris (provost of the merchants of Paris) between 1784 and 1789. This feudal position was abolished in the French Revolution.
