Blackshirt, Monsieur. Monsieur Blackshirt was created by “David Graeme,” the pseudonym of Graham Montague Jeffries (Pierre Allain, Blackshirt, Theodore I. Terhune), and appeared in Monsieur Blackshirt (1933), The Vengeance of Monsieur Blackshirt (1935), and The Sword of Monsieur Blackshirt (1936).

Monsieur Blackshirt is the ancestor of Blackshirt. The French M. Blackshirt is active in the 16th century; he is a "gallant scallawag who is quick with his tongue & his sword & as quick to bandy words with a pretty wench" and "swaggering rogue in whose veins flows the blood of the great de Rohan & a tawny gypsy girl."
