Charles-Marie-Photius Maurras (20 April 1868 – 16 November 1952) was a French author, politician, poet, and critic and an organizer and principal philosopher of Action Française.

During the Second World War, he stated certain support for the pro-German French State. After the war, he was sentenced to life imprisonment for "complicity with the enemy" on the basis of the articles he had published since the start of the war. However, even Wikipedia states that he during the war also stated certain criticisms of Germany and its French supporters and that the postwar trial had "many irregularities such as false dating or truncated quotations".
