The d'Artagnan of fiction

D'Artagnan - fiction

Charles de Batz de Castelmore, known as d'Artagnan, is killed in action on 25 June 1673 in Maastricht at the head of the prestigious 1st Company of the King's Musketeers.

In 1844, he inspires the mythical D'Artagnan in Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers.

Progressively, d'Artagnan becomes a universal myth, sublimated by the pen of Alexandre Dumas, a flamboyant blend of historical truth and fictionalised imagination, regularly revisited, constantly appreciated and respected.

Having discovered the real d'Artagnan, let's move on to the d'Artagnan of fiction.
