D'Artagnan, arriving in Paris from Gascony with no horse and few
worldly goods wishes to join the King's Guards. He finds himself in
the company of three musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, the
most renowned fighters of their day. The adventures they share,
fighting for the honour of the Queen against the machinations of
'Milady', are rich in drama, colour and romance, which is why The
Three Musketeers has remained so popular since its first
serialisation in 1844.
