The third and final volume of the 'd'Artagnon Romances', of which "The Three Musketeers" and "Twenty Years After" constitute the first and second volumes, The Vicomte de Bragelonne was first serialized between October 1847 to January 1850. It has subsequently been published in three, four, and five-volume editions. Our edition contains four volumes: "The Vicomte de Bragelonne", "Ten Years Later", "Louise de la Vallière", and "The Man in the Iron Mask". This second volume contains chapters 76-140 of the work's 268 chapters, that span the period from 1660 to 1667. Beginning with Princess Henrietta's arrival in 1660, it chronicles the drama of the jealous, lustful and scandal-hungry members of the French court, the love triangle between Louis, Louise, and Raoul, and concludes with d'Artagnon's return to Paris. Still widely popular today, Alexandre Dumas pioneered the historical fiction genre of literature, drawing influence from actual events and people, as well as characters and stories from his own imagination.
