Fantoche, Princess. Princess Fantoche was created by the German author Arnold Höllriegel and appeared in the serial “Die Films der Prinzessin Fantoche” (Der Roland von Berlin, 1913; as a novel, 1921).

Princess Fantoche is a Femme Fatale. Princess Fantoche pretends to be a film actress as a way to get close to and rob a film producer. The police’s attempts to apprehend her are all filmed and bring shame to the police. Ultimately it is revealed that Princess Fantoche was working for the film producer, and her robbery of the producer was staged, to bring attention to the producer’s struggling film company.
