Église d'Auteuil (French pronunciation: ​[eɡliz doˈtøj], literally Auteuil Church) is a station of the Paris Métro in the 16th arrondissement, serving Line 10 (westbound service only). With around 172,812 passengers in 2016, it is the least-used station on the Paris Métro network.[1]

Location[edit]

Église d'Auteuil is located in the neighbourhood of Auteuil (fr), one of the westernmost localities in Paris' city proper. There are two access points: both an entrance and exit are available at the Place de Théodore Rivière, while an exit exists on Rue Wilhem at its intersection with Avenue Théophile Gautier.

History[edit]

The station opened on 30 September 1913 as part of the extension of line 8 from Beaugrenelle (now Charles Michels) to Porte d'Auteuil, on 29 July 1937, line 10 was extended from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and the section of line 8 between La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and Porte d'Auteuil, including Église d'Auteuil, was transferred to line 10.

This station was named Wilhem until 15 May 1921. Wilhem was the pseudonym of a French musician, Guillaume Louis Bocquillon Wilhem. However, a municipal councillor became convinced that the station was actually named for Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany, so it was renamed following World War I after a nearby church, Notre-Dame-d'Auteuil.
