Christine Guillemot

This requires 20 years of civil achievement in peacetime or extraordinary military bravery and service in times of war. The Legion is the premier order of the French republic, created by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802, as a general military and civil order of merit conferred.

The Legion has five classes, listed in descending rank: grand cross (limited to 80 members), grand officer (200), commander (1,000), officer (4,000), and knight, or chevalier (unlimited). Napoleon himself made some 48,000 nominations. Currently, the president of France serves as grand master, and the order is administered by a civil chancellor with the help of a council nominated by the grand master.

We congratulate Dr. Guillemot to the honorable title!
