    It’s “Légion d’Honneur”
    And the source was not Noblesse et Royauté” the info was stolen on other French website

    since the in formation is not top secret I doubt that it would qualify as stolen. I have found it on the excellent french blog that I mention, so that is why I named it in the blog entry.
    Thank you for correcting my spelling mistake btw, it has been changed in the blog entry.
