Origin

The Beggar King ruled a gang of thieves that held Paris in its grip in the year 1640. They disguised themselves as disabled beggars to attack and rob the unwary. The Beggar King was really Count de Godard, prefect of Paris, wearing a false hook on his hand. He hoped to use his army of thieves to take over Paris, kill his rival Armand de Valeur, the Captain of the Musketeers, and take Armand's fiancee Marguerite for himself. But the Black Terror of the 17th Century and Timothy defeated and exposed him with Armand's and Marguerite's help.

Notes

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
  • The Beggar King's plot is remarkably similar to that of the Prince of Paupers, a foe of the Duke of Darkness.
