The d'Artagnan Romances

by Alexandre Dumas


The d'Artagnan Romances are a set of three novels by Alexandre Dumas, telling the story of the 17th-century musketeer d'Artagnan. Alexandre Dumas based the character and attributes of d'Artagnan on captain of musketeers Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan (c. 1611–1673) and the portrayal was particularly indebted to d'Artagnan's semi-fictionalized memoirs as written 27 years after the hero's death by Gatien de Courtilz de Sandras.
