Ledru-Rollin is a station on line 8 of the Paris Métro, named after the Avenue Ledru-Rollin.

The station opened on 5 May 1931 with the extension of the line from Richelieu - Drouot to Porte de Charenton. The Avenue Ledru-Rollin is named after the lawyer Alexandre Auguste Ledru-Rollin (1807–1874) who was elected as radical député in 1841 and founded the newspaper La Réforme.
