The Man of Destiny is an 1897 play by George Bernard Shaw. It was published as a part of Plays Pleasant, which also included Arms and the Man, Candida and You Never Can Tell. Shaw titled the volume Plays Pleasant in order to contrast it with his first book of plays, Plays Unpleasant.

The play was revived at The Pentameters Theatre in Hampstead in April 2013, performed in a double bill with The Fascinating Foundling. The cast included Karl Niklas as Napoleon, Seamus Newham as Giuseppe, Lucas Livesey as Lieutenant and Emma West as The Strange Lady. Directed by Michael Friend and produced by Leonie Scott-Matthews.


A version of it aired on Australian television in 1963.[1] A version aired on BBC television in 1939,[2] and is believed to be lost.[3]
