Ferdinand de Villeneuve (5 June 1801 – 27 September 1858) was a 19th-century French playwright.

Short biography


He made his debut at theatre age 21 by partnering with Charles Dupeuty and obtained success from 1823. In 1825, he founded the newspaper La Nouveauté with Dupeuty, Amable de Saint-Hilaire and Musnier Desclozeaux, a publication which became a daily.

Co-director of the Théâtre de la Porte-Saint-Martin with Anténor Joly from December 1835, he then directed, still with Joly, the Théâtre de la Renaissance in 1838 with its own funds.

His plays were presented on several Parisian stages of the 19th century, including the Théâtre des Folies-Dramatiques, the Théâtre du Palais-Royal, the Théâtre du Vaudeville, and the Théâtre des Variétés.

The painter and photographer Julien Vallou de Villeneuve was his brother.
