Young D'Artagnan of Gascony leaves his home to travel to Paris to join forces with the kings army named Musketeers. Once there, he encounters a plot to discredit the Queen and King of France.

D'Artagnan, along with his new musketeer friends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis foil each attempt that the Cardinal tries to undertake. They have sworn to protect the King at all costs and that is what they will do until death. Athos was once a nobleman and had a wife, Milady. He thought she was dead until he was told of the mark on her shoulder, then he knew it was her. He, along with the others, captured Milady and then sentenced her to death by beheading her. With Milady gone, the threat was over and D'Artagnan was given a lieutenancy in the Kings Musketeers.
