The “false beard” was always a part of theatrical
performances. Historically, it had the role of being the king‘s insignia, such
as in Ancient Egypt. It became important in many conspiratorial masks and
disguises, for example, by the former criminal, and later, founder of modern
criminology, Eugéne F. Vidocq. At the same time, it became a popular fashion
article on otherwise beardless men‘s faces.
