The Vicomte De Bragelonne

Alexandre Dumas

Book Overview: 

The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later is the last of the Musketeer novels. It is usually divided into four volumes, The Vicomte de Bragerlonne, Ten Years Later, Louise de la Vallière, and The Man in the Iron Mask. This is the first of those 4 volumes, The Vicomte de Bragerlonne.

After 35 years of loyal service, d'Artagnan resigns as Cardinal Mazarin is the true power behind the throne. He resolves to aid the exiled Charles II to retake the throne of England, unaware that Athos is attempting the same. With their assistance Charles II is restored to the throne and d'Artagnan is rewarded richly.

In France Cardinal Mazarin has died, leaving Louis to assume power with Jean-Baptiste Colbert as his adviser. Louis persuades d'Artagnan to reenter his service, and tasks him to investigate Belle-Ile, the property of Nicolas Fouquet, promising him a substantial salary and promotion to Captain of the King's Musketeers on his return.

I open, I said, the door, that is to say, the palace of one brother to another brother, and I see—stop, sire, that is a load on my heart!—I see the minister of that king drive away the proscribed prince, and humiliate his master by condemning to want another king, his equal. Then I see my prince, who is young, handsome and brave, who has courage in his heart and lightening in his eye,—I see him tremble before a priest, who laughs at him behind the curtain of his alcove, where he digests all the gold of France, which he afterwards stuffs into secret coffers. Yes—I understand your looks, sire. I am bold to madness; but what is to be said? I am an old man, and I tell you here, sire, to you, my king, things which . . . Read More
