The son of a butcher shop owner, Charles Pathé was born at Chevry-Cossigny , in the Seine-et-Marne départment of France. In 1894, together with his brother Émile , he formed Pathé Records. Two years later they created the Société Pathé Frères to enter the motion picture production and distribution business. Both companies would become a dominant international force in their respective industries.
In 1929, Charles Pathé sold out his interest in the businesses and retired to Monaco where he died in 1957.
