Charles de Gaulle lived here



Charles de Gaulle lived here

The convent where De Gaulle stayed after Hitler invaded France.

Location: 99 Frognal, Hampstead

Description: Charles de Gaulle (1890-1970), leader of the Free French forces during World War Two, lived here with his family from September 1942 to 1944.

He later founded the French Fifth Republic in 1958 and served as its first president from 1959 to 1969.

The first reference to Frognal is as a tenement in the 15th century, highly likely to be right here - on the site of the later Frognal House.

After the war in Crimea, the house became the Sailors' Orphan Girls' Home.

In 1968 the building was converted to a finishing school 1968 and today the building, which dates back to circa 1740, is the home of St. Dorothy's Convent.
