The story of Pierrot, Columbine and Harlequin is one that is said to have originated in Turkey some 4000 years ago, but rose to popularity during its appearance in the Commedia del Arte during the Italian Renaissance. The story was fashioned to Parisian tastes by Jean-Gaspard Debureau, a Bohemian-French actor and mime who popularized the Pierrot character through his silent mimes. The story of Pierrot is one of unrequited love. Pierrot is often seen as a moonstruck, naive and foolish character who pines after the lovely Columbine. Eventually, she betrays him and leaves him for Harlequin. Pierrot is also found in the popular French song Au Clair de la Lune.
