D'Artagnan has become a Musketeer. Protestants hold La Rochelle, and the Queen loves Buckingham, who'll soon send ships to support the rebels. Richelieu enlists Rochefort to kidnap Constance, the Queen's go-between and D'Artagnan's love. The Cardinal uses the wily, amoral Milady de Winter to distract D'Artagnan. But soon, she is D'Artagnan's sworn enemy, and she has an unfortunate history with Athos as well. Milady goes to England to dispatch Buckingham; the Musketeers fight the rebels. Milady, with Rochefort's help, then turns to her personal agenda. Can D'Artagnan save Constance, defeat Rochefort, slip de Winter's ire, and stay free of the Cardinal? All for one, one for all.

Did You Know?
Cardinal Richelieu says to d'Artagnan that he has no personal enemies, only enemies of France. This line is in neither the original novel, nor the script. Charlton Heston
came across this quote of the Cardinal's when researching the role, and asked Richard Lester
to find a place to include it in the film. See more
At the time movie takes place (early 1600s) firearms were either matchlocks or wheellocks, or flintlocks. So the musketeers and their rivals using matchlock muskets is correct, but Lady de Winter's percussion pistol wouldn't be invented until the 19th century.. The musketeers are also shown using persussion pistols at thee siege of La Rochelle, Rochefort has two visible inside his carriage, and Porthos fires one during the fight at the convent. These all appear to be flintlock pistols, as the frizzen can be seen, and pre-dates their invention by about 50 years.If they had been using pistols at all, these would have been horse pistols, mid-way between the small pistols shown, and the flintlock muskets, which were in use atr this time.
