ⓘ Dreux

Dreux was known in ancient times as Durocassium, the capital of the Durocasses Celtic tribe. Despite the legend, its name was not related with Druids. The Romans established here a fortified camp known as Castrum Drocas.

In the Middle ages, Dreux was the centre of the County of Dreux. The first count of Dreux was Robert, the son of king Louis the fat. The first major battle of the French wars of religion occurred at Dreux on 19 December 1562, the result of a strong-willed victory of the Catholic forces of the Duc de Montmorency.

In October 1983, the front national won 55% of votes in the second round of elections of the city Council of Dreux, in one of its first significant victories in the elections.
