Louis XIV, the young king of France, was en route to Spain to ask for the hand of Marie Theresa, the Spanish Infanta. He stopped overnight at the castle of Blois to visit his uncle, the Duc d'Orleans. There he met for the first time Louise de la Valliere, the lovely stepdaughter of the duchess' steward. Louise was betrothed to Raoul, the Vicomte de Bragelonne, son of the Comte de la Fere. Another arrival at Blois during the royal visit was the Stuart pretender, Charles II, who came to ask for a loan of a million livres and French aid in regaining the English throne. When Cardinal Mazarin, chief minister of King Louis, refused to lend the money, Charles then turned for assistance to the Comte de la Fere, who had been an old friend of his royal father. The comte was a former musketeer who had been known as Athos many years before, when he had performed many brave feats with his three friends, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan.

The comte was a former musketeer who had been known as Athos many years before, when he had performed many brave feats with his three friends, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan. Disappointed because Mazarin and the king refused to help Charles, D'Artagnan resigned his commission as lieutenant of the King's Musketeers and joined his old friend, Athos, in an attempt to place Charles upon the throne of England. Planning to capture General Monk, leader of the Parliamentary army, D'Artagnan visited Planchet, a former servant who had been successful in trade. Using funds borrowed from Planchet, he recruited fourteen resolute and dependable men and sailed with them for England. In England, in the meantime, the troops of Lambert and General Monk prepared to fight at Newcastle. While the armies waited, Athos arrived to see General Monk. He hoped to obtain the general's aid in recovering a treasure left by the unfortunate Charles I in a vault in Newcastle. This treasure was to be General Monk's bribe for restoring Charles II to the throne. On the general's return from Newcastle, D'Artagnan daringly captured the Parliamentary leader, concealed him in a coffin, and took him to France. Athos, who had promised General Monk to remain in England for a time, was arrested by Monk's soldiers and accused of complicity in the general's disappearance.

"The Vicomte de Bragelonne" by Alexandre Dumas is a work of fiction that takes place during 1660 in France. The structure of "The Vicomte de Bragelonne" can often be somewhat confusing to the reader. "The Vicomte de Bragelonne" is actually part of a longer body of work involving the Three Musketeers. The books are as follows: Part One: "The Vicomte of Bragelonne," Part Two: "Louise de la Vallière," and Part Three: "The Man in the Iron Mask." There are sometimes conflicts regarding where one book should end and another should begin although in most accepted circles such as Project Gutenberg, "The Vicomte de Bragelonne" is comprised of the first 75 chapters. The original stories also are serialized, which may explain the confusion of the separation of the books.The Vicomte de Bragelonne is Raoul, the son of the Comte de la Fere. The Comte de la Fere is famous for his pursuits as Athos, one of the famous Three Musketeers.Raoul arrives at Blois to inform Gaston of the arrival of King Louis XIV, Gaston's nephew. In Blois, Raoul meets and instantly falls in love with a young lady in the court, Louise de la Vallière.Raoul goes to la Fere to visit his father before returning to Blois to await the king's arrival. While Louis is at Blois, he is approached by Charles II, the recently deposed King of England. Charles asks for Louis' help in regaining the throne. Louis, who lacks any type of power as a king, asks Mazarin, his finance minister, for one million livres to assist Charles. Mazarin refuses and Charles is sent away.Later, Charles happens to meet Athos at la Fere. Athos agrees to help Charles by retrieving a fortune he had buried in Newcastle. Athos is successful in his quest. Meanwhile, d'Artagnan has been dispensed to kidnap the powerful General Monk. D'Artagnan takes Monk to meet with Charles. Monk is uncommunicative but decides to help Charles regain his throne. Both Athos and d'Artagnan are handsomely rewarded.Cardinal Mazarin dies. At this point Louis decides that it is time that he steps up to the task of running the government rather than leaving the job to his ministers. The ministers have no intention of giving up their power, particularly the wealthy and corrupt Fouquet. M. Colbert is assigned to be a councilor to Louis. Fouquet and Colbert enter into a battle to take control of the crown.Aramis, Porthos, Athos and d'Artagnan take on different roles in attempting to keep the power in the right hands. D'Artagnan is beseeched to go to Belle-Isle to learn about the state of the island. If the land is being fortified with fortresses and soldiers, then it will be clear to Louis that Fouquet is planning to take over. Colbert is behind the scheme to discredit Fouquet and to claim the crown for his own.D'Artagnan learns that Belle-Isle is being fortified. He also learns that his old friend Porthos is on the island, supposedly studying topography.Porthos and d'Artagnan venture to visit Aramis, the Bishop of Vanne. Aramis figures out d'Artagnan's mission and immediately sends Porthos to Paris. Aramis soon follows with the intention of warning Fouquet of Colbert's plan.D'Artagnan is sent on a wild goose chase just long enough for Porthos and Aramis to reach Paris. Aramis warns Fouquet about Colbert's plans. Fouquet goes to the king to explain the fortification of Belle-Isle while Colbert sits nearby, watching his plan fall apart.

n the beginning, there was The Three Musketeers. Next, there was Twenty Years After. Finally, there was The Vicomte de Bragelonne. Together, the three books are known as Alexandre Dumas's D'Artagnan Romances and cover many years of adventures and swordfights, chronicling the lives of four Musketeers.The books were originally published in serial form, meaning they appeared one chapter at a time in the Parisian newspaper Le Siécle. This explains why Dumas's chapters are fairly self-contained and tend to end with a cliff hanger. He needed to retain readers. You can think of the serial form as the 18th century equivalent of a weekly sitcom that keeps the attention of its audience from one week to the next.When The Vicomte de Bragelonne was put together for publication in book form, English translators took one look and realized it was too long. They typically break it up into smaller volumes - sometimes three, sometimes four. No matter how they slice it, they always entitle the last chunk The Man in the Iron Mask.
