The name Pierre Jobert immediately caught my attention. This is just an aside, but Pierre Joubert is the pen name of a rather celebrated 20th French illustrator with a remarkably homoerotic style.

I wonder if he chose the name based on this historical tidbit? The name is not particularly uncommon, so I don’t suppose there’s any reason to presume, bit it’s interesting!
