The Eiffel Tower is named after Gustave Alexander Eiffel. The design of the Eiffel Tower was originated by Maurice Koechlin and Émile Nouguier, the two senior engineers who worked for the Compagnie des Establissments.
The Eiffel Tower has been in many movies such as 'Ratatouille' and' The Aristocats' and video games such as' Sly 2 Band of Thieves' and 'Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3'.
