Description: [FRANCE] Aime Giron (1836-1907) French poet, writer, lawyer. Aimé Giron began his literary career by publishing poems which appeared in the Revue de Paris, while continuing his legal career in his hometown, where he was secretary of the Academic society. In 1863 he published The Christmas Sabot (with illustrations by Léopold Flameng) who met a great success and was translated into several languages. He then published the poetry collection The Strange Loves, and Three girls in 1864 and Mysterious new in 1866. In 1870 he abandoned as a lawyer to defend the invaded territory. He moved to Bois-Colombes and becomes a contributor to Figaro, the Gauls and France Illustrated. In 1873 he published a new collection of poems Les Cordes de Fer who obtained a warm welcome. He was one of the most prolific writers of his time, finding his inspiration in history and legends of the Velay. He described the most beautiful sites, he has told the captions so that gave rise to the desire to know the Haute-Loire, with warm enthusiasm that gives the love of native soil. He was distinguished on numerous occasions and in particular by the Academy of Floral Games and the French Academy. It is decorated in July 1899 by the Spanish Queen Regent of the Order of Charles III on behalf of King Alfonso XIII, in return for pro-Spanish articles he published during the Spanish-American War in 1898.
