Bourg-la-Reine is a commune in the southern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 9.1 km (5.7 mi) from the center of Paris. The inhabitants are called Réginaburgiens. The town is twinned with Kenilworth, UK (since 1982), Yanqing, China (1998), Reghin, Romania (1999), Monheim am Rhein, Germany (2000).
In 1792, during the French Revolution, Bourg-la-Reine (meaning "Town of the Queen") was renamed Bourg-l'Égalité (meaning "Equality borough"). The name Bourg-la-Reine was restored in 1812.
