Sedan is a commune in France, a sub-prefecture of the Ardennes department in northern France.GeographyThe historic centre is built on a peninsula formed by an arc of the Meuse River.

In the sixteenth century Sédan was an asylum for Protestant refugees from the Wars of Religion.Until 1651, the Principality of Sedan belonged to the La Tour d'Auvergne family. It was at that time a sovereign principality. Their most illustrious representative, Marshal Turenne, was born at Sedan on 11 September 1611. With help from the Holy Roman Empire, it managed to defeat France at the Battle of La Marfée, though immediately afterwards it was besieged and its prince, Frédéric Maurice de La Tour d'Auvergne, duc de Bouillon, submitted to France. Only a year after that submission, it was annexed to France in return for sparing his life after he became involved in a conspiracy against France.Make Sedan central to your France travel plans using our France holiday builder app.
