Ann,

Sir Percy Blakeney was a fictional character, in "The Scarlet Pimpernel".

Go to:

http://www.sirpercy.org/info/books.htm

to read about him and the Author. It also list a "Timeline", for his life and how it was related to the French Revolution.

The painting of "The Laughing Cavalier", was done in 1624, and was incorporated into the novel, by the author, as "Sir Percy Blakeney" (aka as "Diogenes", or "The Scarlet Pimpernel"), being the model for it.

Go to:

http://www.sirpercy.org/stacks/cavalier_ch10.htm

Which is Chapter 10 of "The Scarlet Pimpernel",
to read about the painting of "The Laughing Cavalier", by Frans Hal, that was included in the novel.

Hope this solves your question.

Rae Ellyn
