The first of the d'Artagnon Romance trilogy, The Three Musketeers tells the fictionalized story of the 17th century musketeer d'Artagnon, who leaves his home in rural France with the intention of joining the Musketeers of the Guard in Paris. After being initially rejected, he finds himself being challenged to a duel by the three most formidable musketeers in the guard, and wins their respect after helping them defend against the guards who attempt to stop their illegal duel. Originally Les Trois Mousquetaires, this work is one of Alexandre Dumas' most famous novels, and is followed by Twenty Years Later and The Vicomte de Bragelonne.
