d'Artagnan (c. 1611 - 25 June 1673) served Louis XIV as captain of the Musketeers of
the Guard and died at the Siege of Maastricht in the Franco-Dutch War.
A fictionalized account of his life by Gatien de Courtilz de Sandras formed the basis
for the d'Artagnan Romances of Alexandre Dumas, most famously including The Three Musketeers.
