The name trocadéro comes from a term referring to an emporium or place of trade. The name Place du Trocadéro was given in 1877 (though the name has been associated with the area since 1823) to a square formerly known as the place du Roi de Rome (i.e., Place of the King of Rome), the renaming being an example of discarding a reference to a defeated regime.
In the Place du Trocadéro is located the Palais de Chaillot. Five avenues come from the Trocadéro: the avenue Henri-Martin, the avenue Paul Doumer, the avenue d’Eylau, the avenue Kléber and the avenue d’Iéna.
