The Éditions Plon were created in 1852, by Henri Plon and his two brothers. They were given the title of Imprimeur de l’Empereur (Emperor publisher) and published the correspondence of Louis XIII of France, Marie Antoinette and Napoleon I of France.
In 2001, Havas is itself absorbed par Vivendi, then called Vivendi Universal. The Vivendi group facing financial troubles, sell several publishing companies, including Plon, to Wendel Investissement, which put it under the umbrella of the Editis group. In 2008, Editis is sold to the Spanish group Planeta.
