a little bit of history
1370 to 1671 the building was the residence of the
secretatries of State
and pied à terre to some the Bourbons,
Kings of France,
in particular Henri IV and the young Louis XIV.
1671 our house the VB mansion was for sale
as the Villeroys followed the Bourbons
to live at the brand new Palace of Versailles.
Two entrepreneurs from Tours acquired it:
Leon Pajot et Louis Rouillé.
Telecom Hotspot since 1671
with the creation of "La Poste",
the "Royal French Postal Services"
operated by the Pajot & Rouillé family,
later French PTT,
today seperated into "La Poste" and "France Telecom".
The company started with Leon Pajot and his friend
Louis Rouillé (1630 - 1694)
Louis Rouillé's father
Pierre Rouillé (1593 - 1657) was already
1675, february 2 the son of Louis Pajot,
Leon II Pajot (1647 - 1708)
married the daugther of Leon Rouillé,
Marie Anne Rouillé.(1659 - 1694)
Their oldest son Louis Leon Pajot
is extremly bright and interested in science.
Educated by the jesuits he spend his childhood with books
Among his friends were numerous Dutch scientists
like Herman Boerhaave.
Their grandson Louis Leon Pajot (1678 - 1754)
continued to develop the business.
1708 he became Intendant Général
des Postes et Relais de France, General Postmaster.
He needed the help of Anselm Franz von Thurn & Taxis
another Telecom entrepreneur from Brussels / Francfort.
They were using horses
and post relais to carry mail through Europe.
The Pajot & Rouillé family owned 700 post relais,
the most southern ones were located in Venice and Rome.
The Thurn & Taxis many more all over central Europe,
mainly in the different states of Germany,
the Spanish Netherlands, Bohemia, Austria and Italy.
of these early Telecom companies
were the Hotel de Villeroy / Cremerie de Paris in Paris
and the Thurn & Taxis Palaces in Brussels and Francfort.
The French King Louis XV became jealous
of the succes of "La Poste".
He had no control over the Thurn & Taxis
but being a King with absolute powers in France
he did over the Pajot et Rouillé family.
1738 mai 21 in the early morning
his minister of finance, the cardinal Fleury,
made an end to the postal empire.
Police officers stopped the postal operations
which the king from now on
gave to the Grimod et Thiroux brothers.
Louis Leon Pajot continued his life as an inventor
of scientific instruments that impressed
many important people of the time including his friend
Tsar Peter the Grand of Russia.
With the French Revolution trace of the
Pajot & Rouillé family ceased.
Over the time nobody remembered
the historic telecom company
exept of the Thurn & Taxis
who were shocked how overnight
a four generation old postal company
could disappear ...
And shomehow the destiny of our place
was to continue as a Telecom Hotspot.
The Spirit of Telecommunications
that must remained in the walls,
only needed to be reactivated ...
