  1. Milord

    Milord (French: [milɔʁ]) is a term for an Englishman, especially a noble, traveling in Continental Europe. The term was used in both French and English from the 16th century. It apparently derives ultimately from the English phrase "my lord", which was borrowed into Middle French as millourt or milor, meaning a noble or rich man.


  1. milord

    Milord is a term often used in French and English, derived from "my lord," and is used as a respectful form of address to a gentleman or nobleman. It is historically linked to the British class system. The word is also sometimes used to refer to a distinguished or stylish man.


  1. Milord

    In the nineteenth century, milord was well known as a word that continental Europeans, whose jobs often brought them into contact with travellers, commonly used to address Englishmen or male English-speakers who seemed to be upper-class – even though the English-language phrase "my Lord" played a somewhat minor role in the British system of honorific forms of address, and most of those addressed as "milord" were not in fact proper "lords" at all. The word "milord" was occasionally borrowed back into the English language in order to be used as a sarcastic or jocular reference to British travellers abroad. The most famous usage in recent years has been the 1959 French song "Milord" by Edith Piaf. In Greece the equivalent was O Lordos; Lord Byron was known as "O Lordos", or "Lordos Veeron", causing things as varied as hotels, ships, cricket teams, roads and even suburbs to be called "Lord Byron" today.
