History

The commune of Charleville-Mézières was created in 1966 by the administrative grouping of five former communes, which already formed a single agglomeration. These communes were: Charleville, Étion, Mézières (former préfecture), Mohon and Montcy-Saint-Pierre. Another commune, Le Theux, had already been included into Mézières in 1965. It has a population of about 60,000.

The poet Arthur Rimbaud (1854–1891) was born in Charleville. The Musée Rimbaud (Rimbaud museum) is located in the old water mill (Le Vieux Moulin) to the north of the town.
