Le Figaro

Paris, France

Le Figaro is a French daily newspaper founded in 1826 and published in Paris. It has been generally well respected in post–World War II France. Its editorial line is conservative.

It is the second-largest national newspaper in France after Aujourd’hui en France and before Le Monde, but some regional papers have larger circulations. It is one of the three French newspapers of record and is the oldest newspaper in France that is still published.

Le Figaro is owned by Le Figaro Group, whose publications include TV Magazine and Evene. The company’s chairman is Serge Dassault, whose Dassault Group has controlled the paper since 2004.
