An Ideal Husband

Vicomte de Nanjac

Character Analysis

Lord Goring calls him the "child-diplomatist." With his fancy tie and funny accent, he's half-dandy, half-politico. His flirting with Mrs. Cheveley helps fill us in on her character early on. In addition, his mild courting of Mabel establishes that it is Lord Goring who is her love interest.
