The Hergé Foundation, more often known as French: Moulinsart, and formerly known as Studios Hergé, is the official organization that looks after the world of the famous comic creator Hergé and his famous creation The Adventures of Tintin, along with his other comics like Quick and Flupke and Jo, Zette and Jocko. Created from Studios Hergé in 1987 by Fanny Rodwell, Hergé’s widow, the Hergé Foundation is a not-for-profit organization based in Brussels, the birthplace of the creator of Tintin. It runs Hergé's estate, the official Tintin website, and the new Hergé museum. In 2006, the Hergé Foundation received the Light of Truth Award from the Dalai Lama for Hergé's book Tintin in Tibet.[1]

Moulinsart[edit]

The name "Moulinsart" was chosen as the name for the foundation's commercial and copyright wing, set up to actively work to protect and promote the work of Hergé. It is named after Moulinsart, the château where Captain Haddock lives in the books (in English, "Moulinsart" is known as "Marlinspike").

Editions Moulinsart[edit]

The foundation has released many books on the subject in French under the publishing name "Editions Moulinsart".
