By the law of June 27, 1790, the city of Paris, then limited by the wall of the Farmers General, was divided into forty-eight revolutionary sections. Each has its civil status and its justice of the peace, is administered by a mayor, sixteen deputies and thirty councilors.
The arrondissements are created by the law of October 11, 1795
The boroughs are numbered from west to east and from north to south. Nine occupy the Right Bank, three the Left Bank.
It was in 1859 that Paris was divided into 20 new arrondissements.
