Étain is a commune in the Meuse department in Lorraine in north-eastern France.

It is situated on the Orne River.

Geography

It is located approximately 15 miles to the east north east of Verdun.

History

The town, which dates from the late 7th/early 8th century, does not have any natural defense features so has fallen to the Prussians and Russians in 1815 right after the Battle of Waterloo, and to the Germans in 1870, 1914 and again in 1940.
