On her way to marry the crown prince of Sweden, princess Louise of Mantua, the king's cousin, is attacked by would-be kidnappers who are killed by the musketeers. The attackers were paid in Spanish gold but Rochefort has had a hand in the operation. Louise is brought to Paris for her own safety but another attempt is made on her life and the musketeers link the weaponry used to Rochefort. Ultimately they are more concerned with the princess herself, who may not be what she seems, whilst Rochefort is suspicious of Aramis's relationship with the queen and Constance's husband is a casualty in a shoot out.
