In the final volume of this masterpiece of Dumas, we have the denouement and end of the arcs of our favourite characters, d'Artagnon, Porthos, Athos and Aramis. Saying anymore would truly spoil your pleasure as surprises and reversals rebound. Suffice it to say that the grandeur of the characters and their fates is truly stupefying and I was blown-away but the majesty of the writing and the epic nature of these characters.
I recall from the biography that I read about Dumas by Troyan that Dumas In the final volume of this masterpiece of Dumas, we have the denouement and end of the arcs of our favourite characters, d'Artagnon, Porthos, Athos and Aramis. I recall from the biography that I read about Dumas by Troyan that Dumas most likely wrote this himself without a ghost writer and put various episodes from his life but mostly the tumultuous emotions he harboured towards his father into the writing of this ultimate chapter in this, the longest and most human of his works.

A la fin trois sur quartre des mousquetaires originaux sont morts; a savoir D'Artagnan, Athos et Porthos. En plus le fils Athos, le Vicomte de Bragelonne est mort. Colbert, formerly Mazarin's trusted clerk. Colbert has an intense hatred for M. Fouquet, the king's superintendent of finances, and has resolved to use any means necessary to bring about his fall. With the new rank of intendant bestowed on him by Louis, Colbert succeeds in having two of Fouquet's loyal friends tried and executed.
He then brings to the king's attention that Fouquet is fortifying the island of Belle-Ile-en-Mer, and could possibly be planning to use it as a base for some military operation against the king. Louis calls D'Artagnan out of retirement and sends him to investigate the island, promising him a tremendous salary and his long-promised promotion to captain of the musketeers upon his return.
At Belle-Isle, D'Artagnan discovers that the engineer of the fortifications is, in fact, Porthos, now the Baron du Vallon, and that's not all. The blueprints for the island, although in Porthos's handwriting, show evidence of another script that has been erased, that of Aramis. D'Artagnan later discovers that Aramis has become the bishop of Vannes, which is, coincidentally, a parish belonging to M.
Suspecting that D'Artagnan has arrived on the king's behalf to investigate, Aramis tricks D'Artagnan into wandering around Vannes in search of Porthos, and sends Porthos on an heroic ride back to Paris to warn Fouquet of the danger.

Alexandre Dumas (dit aussi Alexandre Dumas père) est Le Vicomte de Bragelonne - Tome III (French Edition) Kindle Edition. by Alexandre Dumas (Author).
Fouquet rushes to the king, and gives him Belle-Isle as a present, thus allaying any suspicion, and at the same time humiliating Colbert, just minutes before the usher announces someone else seeking an audience with the king. Louis XIV has become king having gained the age of majority, but he is still ruled by Mazarin who is not convinced that the king is ready to be king. Aramis, are not really fond of the idea. On the other hand financial vice-superintendant Mr Colbert sees great possibilities for himself if Fouquet would only be history. At this crucial moment he finally sees himself mastered and, to his own amazement, now values his master more than he thought he would ever.
It sheds a light on diplomacy and honour in a world that is no longer with us, but that was made immortal by authors like Dumas. With him we dream and generations to come will do the same.
