Biography

Villiers was born in Boulogne in the département of Vendée, France. He received a Master's Degree in law in 1971, graduated from the Paris Institute of Political Studies in 1973, and graduated from the National School of Administration in 1978. After university, Villiers became a successful entrepreneur. He created Puy du Fou, one of the most visited themeparks in France, as a living showcase for its history. The themepark includes a replica medieval city with the 'Gallo-Roman Stadium', a coliseum designed by Villiers to stoke patriotic feeling by recreating Gallic rebellions against Imperial Rome.

He is a French aristocrat and a descendant of Prime Minister and Regent Philippe II, duc d'Orléans. As of 2007 he is a Member of the European Parliament (Independence/Democracy Group).
