History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

On 1 January 1860, the city of Paris was enlarged by annexing neighboring communes. On that occasion, about two-third of the commune of Saint-Mandé was annexed to Paris, and forms now the neighborhoods of Bel-Air and Picpus, in the 12th arrondissement of Paris.

In 1929, the commune of Saint-Mandé lost one-quarter of its territory when the city of Paris annexed the Bois de Vincennes, a small part of which belonged to Saint-Mandé, leaving Saint-Mandé as a small rump commune after the territorial losses of 1860 and 1929.
