Good King Dagobert (French title: Le Bon Roi Dagobert; in Italian: Dagobert) is a 1984 French-Italian film directed by Dino Risi.


The film is inspired by a popular song against the French monarchy, created during the French Revolution.

During the 7th century, the lazy and messy King Dagobert I goes to Rome to ask Pope Honorius I for forgiveness of his sins of revelry and fornication. But Dagobert does not know that the pope, while he is still traveling, was replaced in a conspiracy by a perfect double. The replacement is a crude and rude man, even more stupid than Dagobert is.
