Belphégor (English title The Mystery of the Louvre) is a 1927 crime novel by French writer Arthur Bernède, about a "phantom" which haunts the Louvre Museum, in reality a masked villain trying to steal a hidden treasure.
Belphégor inspired several other adaptations, including an eponymous 1965 French television series starring Juliette Greco in the title role (but without Chantecoq) and a 1965 daily comic strip sequel to the TV series drawn by Julio Ribéra which appeared in France-Soir,
Additionally, it was also adapted into a 2001 film starring Sophie Marceau which was the first adaptation to actually be filmed inside the Louvre, and a 2001 French-Canadian animated television series which consisted of 26 episodes.
