The Parti Pirate (website) was founded on 21 June 2006, in the wake of the Swedish Piratpartiet, itself founded in January 2006. The party officially registered as an association on 9 March 2009; the registration was published on 4 April 2009 in the French official gazette.
In September 2009, Maxime Rouquet, then the Speaker of the party and today its President, obtained 2% of the cast of the votes in a legislative by-election held in the Department of Yvelines.
The party is member of "Pirate Parties International", the umbrella organization grouping different Pirate Parties, founded on 16 April 2010 in Brussels.
