Alexandre Dumas’ novel of The Three Musketeers was first serialized in July, 1844.  He tells of the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan after he leaves home to travel to Paris, to join the Musketeers of the Guard. D'Artagnan is not one of the musketeers of the title; those are his friends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, inseparable friends who live by the motto "all for one, one for all"  ("un pour tous, tous pour un"), a motto which is first put forth by d'Artagnan.
