Clemenceau was a French statesman who led the nation in the First World War. He played a central role in politics during the Third Republic.
Clemenceau served as the Prime Minister of France from 1906 to 1909, and again from 1917 to 1920. He was one of the principal architects of the Treaty of Versailles at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. Nicknamed "Père la Victoire" (Father Victory) or "Le Tigre" (The Tiger), he took a harsh position against defeated Germany.
After his death on November 24, 1929, a Foundation was established with the mission « to perpetuate the personal memory of Clemenceau by maintaining the apartment he lived in for 34 years in the exact state it was found in on the day of his death, and by collecting in the building all items or books likely to serve his memory ». The museum opened to the public in 1931.
