    Duroc is a station on lines 10 and 13 of the Paris Métro on the borders of the 6th, 7th and 15th arrondissement. The line 10 station was opened on 30 December 1923 as part of the first section of the ligne circulaire interieur from Invalides to Croix Rouge. This line was planned by Fulgence Bienvenüe to connect the city's six main railway stations, with Duroc presumably intended to serve the Gare de Montparnasse, although it is 500 metres away. This project was eventually abandoned and on 27 July 1937, the section from Duroc to Invalides was transferred to become the first section of old line 14, which was connected under the Seine and incorporated into line 13 on 9 November 1976. The section between Duroc and Croix Rouge, by that time extended east to Jussieu remained as line 10, which was on the same day was extended west from Duroc to La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle. The station is named after Geraud Duroc, Duke of Friuli, who was one of Napoleon Bonaparte's Generals. It is located close to the location of an old toll gate on the road to Sèvres, part of the Wall of the Farmers-General, which was built around Paris between 1784 and 1791 by the Ferme générale company of tax farmers.
