I have listened to this over the last month as an audio book from librivox and is book 19 week 18. This is the sequel to the Three Musketeers, being 20 years later in the story. It follows events in France during the childhood reign of Louis XIV and in England during the time of the English Civil War. In fact probably half the book is devoted to events in England, and it include the musketeers attempts to free King Charles 1 and prevent his execution . The two main French characters in the plot are Queen Anne of Austria and Cardinal Mazarin who are jointly ruling France between them. It also has various sub-plots covering the rebellion in Paris, that was quite hard to follow not knowing any of the French history concerned. The story ends with the musketeers going their separate ways again and Mazarin, Queen Anne and Louis XIV entering Paris to take up ruling again from that city.
