Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The

Baron Munchausen is a character of European myth that might be considered the predecessor of American tales of Pecos Bill or Paul Bunyan. The Baron’s stories are taken to be outrageous and fanciful lies. This is the origin of the name of the psychiatric diagnosis of “Munchausen’s Syndrome”, a particularly bizzare form of hypochondria.
