La part du lion!

This is an easy one. La part du lion is the most generous portion, “the lion’s share”. This expression dates back to 1832. It has been used by Victor Hugo in his novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. The lion has always been perceived as the most powerful animal, the king of the animals. From that, one can easily figure out that la part du lion is the most generous portion!
