Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe History
In 1806, the Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon. The origins of its name came from Napoleon’s desire to honor his Grande Armee (“Grand Army”), which was considered to be the most invincible army Europe has ever seen. After the Austerlitz victory in 1805, Napolean said to his soldiers: “You will return home through the arch of triumph.”
Thoroughbred races were famous in France and restricted to horses that were born and raised in the country up until 1863. By the late 1800s, the Prix du Counseil Municipal was formed and introduced an international race for the world’s leading horses in different age groups. This event was called the Grand Prix de Paris.
The coming of World War I led to the renaming of the race after the Arc de Triomphe. In 1920, the Prix de ‘Arc de Triomphe was inaugurated on October 3, 1920.
