«Le Figaro» is one of the three oldest daily newspapers in France. It was founded in 1826 as a weekly satirical literary magazine and was published irregularly for a long time. The publication got its name in honor of Figaro, the hero of the plays of Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, a famous French playwright. The publication was popular among local intellectuals and writers. At that time, the publication had such sections: Theater, Criticism, Science, Culture, Plays, Short Stories, Scandals, Economics, Biographies, Bibliographies, and so on.

Since 1854, the publication «Le Figaro» has received its second birth. At that time, there was a serious problem with freedom of speech in France, almost all newspapers were under various restrictions and strict censorship. A local journalist and publicist, Hippolyte de Vilmesan, took advantage of the situation to promote the publication. He bought Le Figaro and turned it into a kind of modern tabloid, a representative of the tabloid or tabloid press with characteristic sensational headlines and exclusive news. If other newspapers at that time published the same news, passed through the censorship system, the Le Figaro edition came out with scandalous publications and piquant scenes from Parisian life. The publication was waiting for an incredible period of popularity. Thus, Le Figaro is the first French tabloid newspaper, but in the future it has moved away from this concept.

From 1866 to the present, the newspaper «Figaro» is published and printed every day. Since 1914, she has been remembered by readers for her satirical comics by Abel Faivre. By the beginning of the Second World War, Le Figaro was already the leading newspaper in France, and in the post-war period it represented the interests of the urban middle class and was considered conservative. In terms of its content, the modern «Figaro» has a traditional content for a daily newspaper: the front pages cover the most important local and international events, then brief summaries and analytical articles from the world of politics, economics, culture and science, sports; TV program, weather, entertainment, announcements, etc. It traditionally publishes many cartoons and satires on current national and international topics.

On the newspaper's website, which has been available on the Internet since 1999, readers are offered additional sections that are not available in the print version of the publication, for example, «Figaro Live» — short video reports from newspaper journalists from the event sites, various interactive services, author's blogs.

Every week, the newspaper publishes supplements, a Saturday magazine «Le Figaro Magazine» and a women's magazine «Madame Figaro». Other editorial publications: historical monthly «Le Figaro Histoire», literary «Le Figaro Hors-Série», business publications of the «Le Particulier» series (Le Particulier Santé, Le Particulier Immo, Le Particulier pratique), real estate «Propriétés Le Figaro»
