 History of Paris - Paris On Line
Paris, the capital of France, came into being thanks to its particularly favourable geographic situation for the settlement of human life and to its history, closely linked to that of the kings of France.
Paris became the capital of the kingdom of Clovis, and his successors had numerous churches and basilicas built there (notably the Abbaye Sainte Geneviève as a tribute to the patron saint of Paris, the Église Saint Germain des Prés, and the Palais Royal.).
In 1528 Paris again became the capital of the monarchy under Francis I, who decided to reconstruct the fortress of the Louvre, razing the donjon to the ground and constructing a renaissance palace in place of the two wings of the castle, and to equip Paris with a city hall in keeping with the capital.

 Paris, a very mixed population
"The population of Paris is falling steadily to the benefit of the rest of the region: thus as a proportion of the population of the Ile de France it has fallen from 33% in 1962 to 19.5% in 1999, with less than 1% of the region’s land area".
Elsewhere, some arrondissements have seen their population fall, such as the 1st (in the centre), where it has fallen dramatically by 30% in twenty-five years, primarily because of the rapid rise in offices and shops.
Indeed, currently the West of Paris - where the smartest districts are (such as the very residential 7th arrondissement and the very bourgeois 16th) - like the centre, has extremely few social-housing units compared to the East.

In the period from 1853-1870 Paris turned a corner and emerged from being an overgrown mediaeval city to become a modern capital.
But the whole financial aspect of the transformation of Paris was so complicated and bound up with the decline of the Second Empire and with Haussmann’s fall that it has been reserved for a separate chapter.
Haussmann baldly remarks that this design by on e of his architects, Hittorff, was so bad that he had to mask the fronts with trees; but at least in ensure the uniformity without which half the effect of the street planning would have been lost.
