Le Roi S’Amuse [The King’s a fool] is a play written by Victor Hugo in 1832. While it depicts the escapades of Francis I of France. Censors of the time believed that it also contained insulting references to King Louis-Philippe and banned it after one performance. The lawsuit that Hugo brought to permit the performance of the play propelled him into celebrity as a defender of freedom of speech in France.. He lost the suit, however, and the play was banned for another fifty years. Leo Delibes later wrote incidental music for its performance.
