Sully – Morland (French pronunciation: ​[syli mɔʁlɑ̃]) is a station of the Paris Métro, France, named after the Pont de Sully and the Boulevard Morland. The Pont de Sully commemorates Maximilien de Béthune, Baron of Rosny, Duke of Sully (1560–1641), friend and Minister to King Henri IV. It crosses the Seine to the Île Saint-Louis and the Boulevard Saint-Germain. The Boulevard Morland was named after Colonel François-Louis Morlan (called "Morland", 1771–1805) who was killed at Austerlitz, with his body being repatriated in a barrel of rum.
