*Rue de la Tombe-Issoire is part of what once was the ancient central axis (cardo maximus) of the Roman city Lutetia. The road, via Turonensis (or way to Paris) lead from Orleans to Saint Jacques de Compostela.
Legend has it that the current street is named for a giant called Issoire (or possibly Isoré, Isoire, or Isouard ). Issoire did what giants do, he prayed upon the pilgrims traveling along his road. Of course robbing pilgrims was frowned upon and, eventually, the giant was slain by Guillaume d’Orange (William of Orange). William cut off the giant’s head to take as a trophy. The huge body, too big to move, was left where it lay.
« Roi Isoré tint la hace tranchante,
Vers dant Guillaume est venus tost corant,
Férir le guide sour son hiaume luisant
Li quens se haste si le ferir avant
Le col li trence aussi con qu’un enfant
Puis prend la teste à tout l’elme luisant
Ainc n’en veut plus porter ne tant se quand
Le corps laissa a terre tout sanglotant »
