[Tex/LaTex] How to write the capital letter form of “è”


I would like to write the capital letter form of "è"; many people suggest to do it by typing \'E which gives the accent in the opposite direction from left to right.
How can I get the capital letter "è" with the accent that points to the left?

The backtick is located in the upper left corner of your keyboard (assuming QWERTY) with the tilde (~), above the TAB and below the ESC keys.

The code should look like this:
