About The Book
"""Set in medieval France, this story continues the tale of the three
musketeers. Many years after their exploits, the musketeers are wellestablished in society. We see Aramis, who is a bishop now, meeting a prisoner. However, there is no confession to be heard. Aramis is at the root of a conspiracy that could change the course of French history. The fact that the prisoner is the twin brother of the King of France has sealed his fate and destined him to spend the rest of his life in prison. But Aramis has a different plan in mind. Being one of the few to know the prisonerĺs identity, Aramis conspires to replace the King of France with his twin brother, with the idea that the prisoner will be a better ruler for France. How will this plan turn out? Will Aramis succeed? When the other musketeers find out about the plan what stand will they take? To find out, read this classic tale of love, politics and loyalty.""
About Alexandre Dumas
Born as Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie on 24 July 1802, in Villers-Cottere╠éts, Picardy, France, AlexAndre dumAs was one of the most prolific authors of his time.The last name Dumas was adopted from his grandmother, a former enslaved Haitian woman. His father,Thomas-Alexandre, assumed the name Dumas when he enlisted in Napoleons army. Here, he was given the dubious nickname Black Devil.
Popular for his historical adventure novels like The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers (initially published as serials), Dumas immersed himself in literature after he moved to Paris in 1822. During the 1830 revolution, he worked as a scribe for the Ducd Orle╠üans (later named King Louis Philippe), and began writing dramas and comedies. Dumas had a penchant for writing volumes of essays on some of the most infamous cases in history. It is believed that his published works totalled 100,000 pages and his works have been translated into more than 100 languages.
A household name and a celebrity in France and across Europe, Dumas founded the The╠üa╠étre Historique in Paris in the 1840s.
Dumas died on 5 December 1870, in Puys, France. He was buried at his birthplace of Villers- Cottere╠éts in the department of Aisne.
In 1970, as a mark of honour, the Alexandre Dumas Paris Me╠ütro station was named after
the author. His country home outside Paris, the Cha╠éteau de Monte-Cristo, has been restored as a museum.
