About sight: Military Academy

The Eiffel tower is near the Champ de Mars. It was so named to honour the Roman deity and was the place of military parades of the students of the Military Academy, located on the opposite side of the Champ de Mars. The Academy was opened in the reign of Louis XV, by initiative of his favourite Madame de Pompadour, so that even poor young men could make a military career. And it was just there that Napoleon Bonaparte studied. And he finished it as sublieutenant of artillery in 1785.
