THE MARQUIS DE LA FAYETTE

Is known universally as the “Hero of Two Worlds” and as one of the “Founding Fathers of the Modern Democracy” for his decisive role

  • During the American War of Independence (1775-1783)
  • And during the French Revolution (1789-1799) 

Two historic events that would give rise to the United States of America and French Republic

and globally to the modern democracy on the principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity between individuals and peoples.

Today his legacy goes beyond the bond of friendship between France and the United States of America and belongs to all Humanity.

Le Marquis de La Fayette est connu universellement comme le « Héro des deux Mondes » et comme un des “Pères Fondateurs” de la démocratie moderne 

pour son rôle déterminant lors de

la Guerre d’indépendance américaine (1775-1783)

et de la Révolution française (1789-1799).

Deux événements historiques qui allaient donner naissance aux États-Unis d’Amérique et à la République française

et globalement à la démocratie moderne sur des principes de liberté, d’égalité et de fraternité entre les individus et les peuples.

Aujourd’hui son héritage va au-delà du lien d’amitié entre la France et les États-Unis d’Amérique et appartient à l’humanité toute entière.
