This edition first published in ISBN: Musketeers, he met in the ante amber three young men, serving in the illustrious .. "A le er addressed to Monsieur de Treville, captain of the Musketeers.".
That sale provides him with the means to procure inexpensive lodgings and to have a new blade made for his sword. This inauspicious beginning is followed by a series of squabbles with three men the Musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis he meets shortly after his arrival in the French capital.
He agrees to a duel with each and, with the same brash courage that he has already displayed in Meung, schedules those contests back to back. D'Artagnan's impetuous bravado in these early encounters, along with his ignorance of the codes of behavior and the political rivalries at work in Paris and at the royal court, make it clear that the young man will need more than daring and a certain native intelligence if he is to achieve his goals.
He will have to find mentors who can help him understand the complicated relationships, hidden truths, and moral subtleties of modern that is, seventeenth-century French life. D'Artagnan also meets Constance Bonacieux, the young and beautiful wife of his Parisian landlord and laundress to Queen Anne.

Constance will not only offer the young man an opportunity to prove his mettle, but will also win his heart. She tells D'Artagnan that the King has ordered the Queen to wear the diamond studs he gave her to an upcoming ball.
Unfortunately, Anne no longer has those studs in her possession. She has given them, with her affections, to England's handsome Duke of Buckingham. Cardinal Richelieu, who is in love with the Queen and has been spurned by her, knows this and hopes to take advantage of the difficulty the situation presents.
He sends a ruthlessly seductive agent in his employ-Milady-to England to obtain the diamonds from Buckingham.
If she succeeds and is able to bring the studs back before the ball, the Cardinal will be able to prove that the Queen has been unfaithful to Louis and to France.
To save the Queen's reputation and perhaps even her life, D'Artagnan must also seek out Buckingham and return the studs to Anne instead.
He must overcome the obstacles of time and distance and evade the Cardinal's agents who have been sent out to prevent him from crossing the English Channel. However determined he may be, young D'Artagnan cannot hope to prevail alone against his cunning and dogged adversaries.
He therefore enlists the help of Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, who will accompany him on this crucial and dangerous voyage. The journey, the final stages of which the young man completes alone his friends having been variously rendered hors de combat along the way , lies at the heart of the novel.

Hurry on your way! They found a ship headed for England—and just in time! The harbor had been closed by order of the cardinal.
