Ségur (Paris Métro)
Ségur is a station on line 10 of the Paris Metro on the border of the 7th and 15th arrondissements.
The station was opened on 29 July 1937 when line 10 was extended from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet (now called La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle). It is named after the Avenue de Ségur although the station is on the Avenue de Suffren and the Avenue de Ségur is 100 meters away. Marquis de Ségur (1724–1801) was a Marshal of France and Secretary of State for War from 1780 to 1787.
