Introduction: Medieval Francophonia. Ad Putter and Keith Busby. Purchase this chapter online only : EUR Drama and Community online only : EUR The next day the courtiers prevent Triboulet from entering the room in which Blanche is with the king. When she emerges she tells her father the whole story, which makes the jester determined to take revenge. As Saint-Vallier is taken to his execution Triboulet replies that the curse will soon act on the king. He goes to Saltabadil at an inn by the Seine and pays half the money for the murder.
The king also arrives at the inn, where he waits for Maguelonne, the assassin's sister. When the monarch goes to sleep, Saltabadil plans to deal the fatal blow, but Maguelonne asks him to spare the man who has charmed her and instead to kill a random stranger and give that body to the jester. Blanche overhears and can see that the king is unfaithful but decides to save him by sacrificing herself. She enters and is mortally wounded. In the final act, it is midnight and a storm is passing. Triboulet returns to collect his prize in a sack and refuses Saltabadil's offer to help him throw it in the river, but just as he is about to do so, he hears the king's voice singing and realizes he has been duped.
As lightning flashes, he opens the sack and sees that the body in it is his daughter; after asking forgiveness of him, she dies.
A crowd is attracted by Triboulet's cries and believes he has killed someone, but a woman stops them from taking him away. A doctor also arrives at the scene and pronounces Blanche dead.
In his preface to the play, the author notes that Triboulet "hates the king because he is king; hates the nobles because they are nobles and hates men because they don't all have a hump-back While it depicts the escapades of Francis I of France , censors of the time believed that the play also contained insulting references to King Louis-Philippe and a ministerial decree banned it after one performance. There were 19 performances that year and 28 more in Giuseppe Verdi 's opera Rigoletto is based on Hugo's play, which the librettist Piave followed closely in his Italian translation.
The film Il re si diverte is also an adaptation of Hugo's play, and starred Michel Simon as the jester. The play has been published by Faber and Faber.
