    It was on May 22, 1907 that Georges Remi was born in Etterbeek, a municipality of Brussels. The young boy began his secondary studies at the Collège Saint-Boniface, in Brussels, where he was a fairly good student. In 1921, he entered the college scout troop, where he received the totemic name "Curious Fox". His first drawings appeared in “Never enough”, the scout magazine of the school establishment then, from 1923, in “Le Boy-Scout belge”, the Belgian scout monthly. Already in 1924, it is from the name of Hergé - RG, the initials of Georges Remi - that he now signs his illustrations. In 1925, he finished his studies, and was hired by the newspaper "Le Vingtième Siècle", as an employee in the subscription department. A year later he created "Totor, CP des Hannetons", in "Le Boy-Scout belge". In 1927, Georges Remi performed his military service. Back in Brussels in 1928, Hergé was bombarded as editor-in-chief of the "Petit Vingtième", the weekly youth supplement of the "Vingtième Siècle". The first issue appeared on November 1 of the same year. January 10, 1929 saw the creation of a character who would go around the world, "Tintin and Milou" in the "Petit Vingtième". Two years later he created "Quick and Flupke, kids from Brussels" (first published on January 23, 1930), actors of short complete stories in the "Petit Vingtième". Publication of Tintin's first album, "Tintin, reporter in the land of the Soviets". Georges Remi married Germaine Kieckens in 1932, secretary, to Abbé Wallez, director of the "Vingtième Siècle". Maison Casterman, based in Tournai, became the publisher of the adventures of Tintin in 1934. Meeting a young Chinese student, Tchang Tchong-Jen, marked a decisive turning point in Hergé's career. He convinces himself of the importance of a solidly constructed scenario and of the need for documentation. What was just a game for him is slowly becoming serious work. In 1935, Hergé created a new series and new heroes for the French weekly "Coeurs vaillants": "Jo, Zette et Jocko". Five albums will be released. Just before the War, following the positions taken in favor of the Chinese people expressed by Hergé in "The Blue Lotus", the creator of Tintin was invited by the wife of Chiang Kai-Shek to go to China. The impending war in Europe will prevent this trip. On May 10, 1940, Belgium was invaded by German troops. "Le Vingtième Siècle" and, with it, "Le Petit Vingtième" disappear. "Tintin in the land of black gold", the episode currently being published, is interrupted for eight years. Hergé undertakes another, "Le Crabe aux pinces d'or", which he publishes in "Le Soir", one of the only newspapers that the occupier authorizes to appear. It was precisely during this period that he met Jacques Van Melkebeke (the future editor-in-chief of the "Journal Tintin"), with whom he collaborated for various things. It was this same Jacques Van Melkebeke who, one evening in 1941, during a performance of their play "Tintin in India, the mystery of the blue diamond", introduced him to a childhood friend, Edgar Pierre Jacobs. In 1942, the publisher Casterman, which planned to publish henceforth standardized albums (of 64 pages and in color), obtained from Hergé that he gradually adapt the episodes already published to these new constraints. The liberation of Belgium on September 3, 1944 put an end to the publication of the adventures of Tintin in "Le Soir". Some consider that having published in a newspaper controlled by the German occupier, Hergé collaborated with it. Despite everything, the cartoonist continues the important work of his first albums, which will be published one after the other according to the new standards. In 1946, publication, on September 26, of the first issue of Tintin magazine, a new weekly created for young people by a former member of the Resistance, Raymond Leblanc. Having undertaken "We walked on the Moon", an episode which required significant technical work, great documentary rigor and particular attention, Hergé surrounded himself with collaborators and founded the Studios Hergé in 1950 (these collaborators were, among others, Edgar Pierre Jacobs , Jacques Martin, Paul Cuvelier, Willy Vandersteen and Bob de Moor, the latter of whom was faithful to him to the end). Five years later, Tintin, whose albums are increasingly successful, is so popular that advertising is interested in him. At the same time, Hergé is developing a collection of chromos in which Tintin plays the role of presenter in different fields of knowledge. In 1958, the episode "Tintin in Tibet", is completed despite the personal crisis experienced by Hergé. Tintin was finally adapted to the cinema and it was the young Belgian Jean-Pierre Talbot who played him on the big screen in "Tintin and the mystery of the Golden Fleece" in 1960. The actor did it again in 1964, in "Tintin and blue oranges". Meanwhile, Georges Rémi discovered contemporary art, which became a real passion. He separates from his wife. The Belvision studios in Brussels produced a feature-length cartoon from the album "Le Temple du Soleil" in 1969. Two years later, during a first trip to the United States. Hergé meets some Redskins. It was in 1973 that Casterman editions published a first volume of the Hergé Archives. The mythical "Tintin, reporter for the Petit Vingtième in the land of the Soviets", thus reappears, more than forty years after he had become untraceable. Hergé visits Taiwan, thirty-five years after the official invitation made to him. The divorce with his first wife having been pronounced, Georges Remi married Fanny Vlamynck in 1977. In 1979, the American Andy Warhol, leader of Pop Art, made a series of four portraits of Hergé. The "birth" of Tintin commemorated everywhere. The fifty years of existence of Hergé's favorite hero are notably celebrated by means of the stamp issued by the Belgian Postal Authority, the exhibition "Le Musée imaginaire de Tintin" and the album "Cinquante ans de travail fort gais ", etc 1981 will be the year of the emotional reunion between Hergé and Tchang Tchong-Jen, the Chinese friend who had inspired "The Blue Lotus" forty-five years earlier. To celebrate Hergé's 75th birthday in 1982, the Belgian Astronomical Society gave his name to a recently discovered planet. The planet Hergé is located between Mars and Jupiter. In 1983, on March 3, we learn with great sorrow, the death of the "master", Georges Remi, known as Hergé, following a long illness.
