The borough of Auteuil, once home to Victor Hugo and Molière and the birthplace of Marcel Proust, was incorporated into the city of Paris in 1859-60 by the Law of 16 June 1859. A hamlet built between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries, it became a fashionable country retreat for French elites during the reign of Louis XV. Auteuil is home to the well known prépa PTSI-PT* Jean-Baptiste-Say which prepares many pupils for the École Polytechnique.
