The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers

by Alexandre Dumas

Comte de Wardes

Character Analysis

An agent of the Cardinal. He is almost able to stop D’Artagnan from traveling to England and getting the studs, but D’Artagnan wounds him three times in a swordfight. D’Artagnan thinks highly of this man as a gentleman who, in different circumstances, he might befriend, but we never see or hear of the Comte again. Later D’Artagnan borrows his identity in order to seduce Milady.
