Harry Potter and The Legion of Honour

Earlier today France bestowed upon Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling  the honorary title of “knight” in the legion.  Rowling was inducted into the Legion of Honour by French President Nicolas Sarkozy during  a ceremony in a gilded hall in the Elysee presidential palace.

In 2003,  prior to the publication of the French language edition, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix became the first ever English book to top the French bestsellers list.
