What do the word historians have to say?

http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=ridiculous&allowed_...

ridiculous (adj.) 1540s, ridyculouse, from Latin ridiculosus "laughable," from ridiculus "that which excites laughter," from ridere "to laugh."

Shakespeare and other 17c. writers sometimes spelled it rediculous.
