In 1622 King Luis XIII of France established the special corp of "The Musketeers", with the first Count of Treville in charge of them. This corp was formed by 100 Musketeers, one cornet, one sergeant, one lieutenant and one captain. Among them, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, known as "THE THREE MUSKETEERS", stood out due to their exploits. Together with the brave D'Artegnan, the three musketeers were the protectors of the Queen Anne, against the conspirations from the treasonous Cardinal Richelieu.
