According to Massie's biography, Pierre Gilliard went on to teach at the University of Lusanne and was awarded a French Legion of Honor. I'm wanting to know if anyone knows in what year he was awarded this and what it was for specifically? I can't seem to find the year he got it anywhere and since he was alive into the 60's that's a very broad time spectrum. I'd be appreciative if anyone knows anymore!

Alyosha Love,

Although I don't have reliable information, but according to my knowledge and experience Gilliard could have been awarded only with one of the lowest degrees of the Legion of Honor, either Chevalier or Officier. That lower degrees were/are awarded to different civil service and other civil achievements. All in all I think that it wasn't connected with Romanovs at all. Something like: "for longtime good service in University of Lusanne".

Btw, he was a foreign recipient (Swiss) and was awarded after WWII. Unfortunately, there is no reliable information (including French sources) about that time awards.
"I think that if Shakespeare lived in our times he would not be able to write. Many of his works are not welcome on stage nowadays: The Merchant of Venice – anti-Semitism, Othello – racism, The Taming of the Shrew – sexism, Romeo and Juliet - hideous heterosexual show..." - Vladimir Bukovsky.

Thanks very much for the information Nicola!

I did assume that it wasn't likely connected with the Romanovs, but it certainly is interesting. Even a lower class of that award seems to be quite an achievement.

My gut feeling is that he received the legiion of honor for being a prestigious French educator.  probably part of it had to do with being famous as a French tutor of the Russian Imperial family.

he was awarded the legion of order in 1921 and at this time he wold have been famous due to his association with the children of the Tsar so my feelling is that he received it for spreading French to Russia at a high level.

Absolutely superb photos (and discoveries), Antonina!

The handsome young Zhilik and his distinguished elder self

Yes and Alexandra, Shura, so nice to see her face.

The eyes of both of them saw an awful lot of the events that draw us.

I'm not so sure about that English pronunciation part.My experience as an American somewhat francophone would have the final 'd' pronounced, thus:Zheell-yard. And as on the models of Juilliard, Montagnard, perhaps even billiard.

I see your point. And wouldn't an English-based pronunciation of Gilliard start with [dʒ] instead of [ʒ]?

I would say you're probably right there.As I practiced pronouncing each option, the former seems better.And I ain't djoking.
