Paris is the largest city in France and the country's longtime capital city.[1] It is situated in northern France, on the river Seine.[1]

Information[]

Geography[]

The geography of the city of Paris is dominated mainly by the feature of its major river, the Seine, which runs through it roughly east-to-west, cutting the city in half. However, due to the bend of the river, which curves once like a horseshoe—from entering southeast down to exiting southwest—most of the area of Paris lies on the north side, which is sometimes referred to as the Rive Droit (literally, the "Right Bank"). The south side of the Seine is thus known sometimes as the Rive Gauche (literally, the "Left Bank"). A major historical part of the city lies on a large island in the middle of the river, known as the Île de la Cité (literally, the "Island of the City"). This island formed the nucleus of Paris for much of its historical development.[2] The city is relatively flat, sat in a river basin, with only a handful of small hills rising above its general elevation at 35 meters above sea level—the tallest such hill, at Belleville, rises only 148 meters above sea level.[3]

Administration[]

Paris is currently divided into twenty subdivisions, called arrondissements municipaux or "arrondissements" for short.[1]

Siege and commune[]

At the end of the reign of Napoleon III, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, who had declared himself Emperor of France and established the Second French Empire in 1852, the nation had engaged itself in a war with Imperial Germany, which came to be called the Franco-Prussian War.[4] The campaign was disastrous for the French, and Napoleon III was captured himself by the Germans.[4] The remaining French government deposed Napoleon III, while he was still under capture, in 1870.[4]

Amnesia: Justine[]

Paris was one of the cities in which Justine (protagonist of Amnesia: Justine) spent time. She and her three lovers had been to the city often enough that local journalists knew of her and wrote about her specifically when Malo de Vigny showed up thoroughly inebriated to a disastrous performance at the Conservatory.[6]

Amnesia: Rebirth[]

Paris was also the home of Tasi Trianon (protagonist of Amnesia: Rebirth), her husband Salim Hannachi, and their daughter Alys. They lived together at "25 Rue de l'Oriflamme, Montparnasse," ca. 1937.[7][8] When Tasi and Salim departed the city to work for Hank Mitchell prior to the events of the game, they flew from Le Bourget airport,[9][10] the city's major airport at the time.[11]

Amnesia: The Bunker[]

Paris is neither explicitly mentioned in the dairies nor seen during the game. It is partly visible at one of Lambert's photos, in which he, his wife and daughter were standing in front of Eiffel Tower. Whether Lambert and his family lived in Paris, or were only visiting, is unknown.[note 1]

Footnotes[]

  1. This fact does, however, date the photograph to no earlier than 1889, when the Tower was completed for that year's World Exposition in Paris. This is not too useful in judging Augustin Lambert's age, as this only restricts the timeframe of when the photo was taken to roughly twenty-seven years, between 1889 and 1916.
