Where in France do Pomme Dauphine originate?

I have searched and searched and can't find the actual region from which these potato puffs come from. Can I assume they come from Versailles or Paris because of the royal designator?

Former Dauphine section, Hautes-Alpes southeast France.

Wrong. I was thinking of the casserole. The potato puffs aren't named for a region, but for the Dauphine.

Nancy, Thanks for the attempt. I had thought the same thing at first. :)
