Det skal I lave

Explore the beautiful Marais area through the stories of the Kings and Queens who built it! During this historical walk, we will connect magnificent off the beaten path places to the reign of five quintessential Kings who established Absolute Monarchy!

Let's mingle with the famous or infamous royal "favourites": La Marquise de Montespan; La Pompadour; Du Barry; etc. The glamour, palace lifestyle, dangerous liaisons, and scandals might be the most visible facet of the royal court but...

...Kingdoms are also built with blood, sweat and tears, wars of thrones, political feuds, family betrayals, assassinations, beheadings... As they said: business as usual! Yet, in the midst of all that, Voltaire, Rousseau and the age of enlightnment emerged: a Revolution of ideas was planting its seeds...

By the end of our walk, you will have a greater understanding of the two centuries leading up to the French Revolution and you will be able to distinguish Kings Henry IV, Louis XIII, Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI!

Join me on a Journey back in time to the making of Absolute Monarchy in the gorgeous Marais area!

Hi, I’m Thierry Collegia!

History has been my passion since I was a teenager. My purpose is to make history entertaining and to show the human side of historical figures. I love sharing the little anecdotes behind the major events and I enjoy revealing the secrets of Paris hidden in the major landmarks or in the nooks and crannies.

Having spent 16 years in the US and the UK gives me the hindsight to approach historical events with different perspectives, along with a knowledge drawn from a lifetime of attending history talks, courses, exhibitions, tours and reading hundreds of books.

So come time travel with me on my Historic Walks (or Online Experiences) on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris; La Fayette; the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Kings & Queens; and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!

This is the second tour I’ve done with Thierry. He is passionate about French history and a great storyteller. I have already signed-up for another of his tours!

We did an afternoon tour with Thierry. We didn’t have a great deal of knowledge about the history of French kings and Thierrys stories were informative and fun. Not only was it historical, he even had some juicy gossip about the kings. A great value for the money and a good way to spend some time seeing places we wouldn’t have found on our own. Just be prepared to walk a lot.

We enjoyed Thierry's tour and discovered places we would not have visited without a guide. The stories he tells make the tour most interesting.

Fabuleux !!! On a passé 2,5 heures fascinantes, divertissantes et drôles avec Thierry qui est un grand passionné de l’histoire et un conteur vivant. Le temps est passé trop rapidement. J‘ai déjà fait 4 tours en ligne avec lui et alors c‘était un vrai plaisir de le rencontrer réellement. Je recommande vivement. Merci.

Thierry’s tour on Kings & Queens in the Magnificent Marais was very informative and interesting! I had a great time walking through the Marais with Thierry telling about significant parts of French history. Never dull, full of anecdotes with room for questions and accompanied by images on his ipad, we had a lovely stroll through the area. I recommend!
