The King of France (Modern French: Le Roi de France) (Old French: Lo Roy/Rey de France) is character that appears in Tom and Jerry shorts "The Two Mouseketeers" and "Royal Cat Nap". In some of the mouseketeer series of cartoons, Tom serves the king of France. This is an obvious reference to Louis XVI of France, who is shown as an extremely short-tempered and cruel monarch. In The Two Mouseketeers (1952), the king executes Tom while in Royal Cat Nap (1958), he orders for Tom's execution.
