We sometimes forget that since its birth as a scientific knowledge, not much more than a century ago, history has always been closely associated with the education of the citizen. This article intends to retrace not only the origins of this association, but also its evolution to present time with a particular emphasis on its two main stages. It ends with an illustration of a current association between history and citizenship education in a school curriculum.
