Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve (1685?1755) was a French novelist who wrote the story La Belle et La Bête (Beauty and the Beast), first published in 1740. Based on a tale that dates back thousands of years, Barbot de Villeneuve's story is the oldest-known written version. But it was the length of a novel, so after her death in 1755, the story was abridged and rewritten by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, who gave no credit to Barbot de Villeneuve and whose shortened version is the one best known today.
