The Scarlet Pimpernel's alter ego was aristocratic and foppish Sir Percy Blakeney. Hungarian author Emmuska Orczy wrote the play and a series of novels about the Englishman who led the fight to liberate French aristocrats from the guillotine during the French Revolution. The books were written at the beginning of the 20th century, but set in the 18th century.
