Transcript of The Three Musketeers Book Presentation

Presentation by:
The Musketeers:
What is this novel about?
The Three Musketeers
focuses on a young man named d'Artagnan as he goes to Paris to join the Musketeers of the Guard.
The author based the accounts of the novel on the
Mémoires de Monsieur d'Artagnan
, a historical novel containing d'Artagnan's first visit to M. de Tréville, and his accounts on meeting three young men named Athos, Porthos, and Aramis.
Mémoires de Monsieur d'Artagnan
was Dumas' source and inspiration for his novel.
Summary of the Novel:
In the beginning, d'Artagnan sets off to join the Musketeers of the Guard, but loses to a duel with Rochefort after the latter insulted him.
When arriving in Paris, d'Artagnan is turned down, and while trying to go to Rochefort after noticing him, offends the 3 Musketeers, who demand a duel.
History and The Three Musketeers
The Three Musketeers
itself is inspired by on the

Mémoires de Monsieur d'Artagnan
, which itself is actually historically based.
Most of the characters, including d'Artagnan, Cardinal Richelieu, Anne and Louis XII, and even the commander of the musketeers, M. de Tr
ville, were all real historical people.
Despite not being real people, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis were named after real historical musketeers.
Finally, some of the events depicted did happen in actual history, like the siege of La Rochelle.

Cardinal Richelieu

During the duel, Cardinal Richelieu's guards try to arrest the 4 men for illegal dueling, but the Musketeers won out, with d'Artagnan wounding an officer who was a renowned fighter. Because of that, King Louis XIII appointed d'Artagnan to a musketeer company.
Another of the three musketeers. A religious and ambitious man, Aramis retired to a monastery by the end of the novel.
As part of a plan to bring England and France to war, Cardinal Richelieu made the King demand the Queen to wear the diamonds to a party sponsored by the Cardinal. The King gave the Queen a gift of diamond studs, she gave them to the Duke of Buckingham (her lover) as a keepsake. In the end, d'Artagnan was able to return a complete set of jewels to Queen Anne just in time to save her honour.
D'Artagnan later meets Milady de Winter, and recognizes her as one of the Cardinal's agents, and later finds out that Milady as a felon. Discovering his identity, Milady tries to kill him d'Artagnan, who escapes.
Later, the musketeers overhear Milady's job from the Cardinal to murder the Duke of Buckingham; Athos takes Milady’s letter of pardon. Milady is later imprisoned in England, but escapes to try to kill Buckingham. The Musketeers arrest Milady before she reaches the Cardinal, and sh was later executed. Afterward, at the siege of La Rochelle, Rochefort arrests d'Artagnan and takes him straight to the Cardinal. D'Artagnan presents Milady’s letter of pardon when questioned about her execution. In response, the Cardinal destroyed the letter and wrote a new order, giving the bearer a promotion to lieutenant in the musketeers, with the name blank. Athos, Porthos, and Aramis turned down d'Artagnan's offer of it to them, and let d'Artagnan use it.
