Alexandre Dumas

Alexandre Dumas (24 July 1802 – 5 December 1870) was a prolific French writer of adventure novels. His famous historical novels, all published as serials, include The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After, and The Vicomte de Bragelonne. The last three works form what is called the d'Artagnan Romances. The very last one of this series (The Vicomte de Bragelonne, also called, Ten Years Later) includes The Man in the Iron Mask.

One of his illegitimate children is named Alexandre Dumas after him. He became a successful novelist and playwright on his own term, and was known as Dumas, fils (son), and sometimes Alexandre Dumas himself is called Dumas, père (father).

Alexandre Dumas died on 5 December 1870 at his son's villa in France. His remains were transferred in 2002 to the Panthéon in Paris, to join such notable French literary giants as Émile Zola, Victor Hugo, Jean Jacques Rousseau, and Voltaire.

He has been translated close to a hundred languages, and is probably the most widely read French author.

Random Quote/Passage:

 "«À la bonne heure! s'écria d'Artagnan, ils pensent à moi dans leurs plaisirs comme je pensais à eux dans mon ennui; bien certainement que je boirai à leur santé et de grand coeur; mais je n'y boirai pas seul.» Et d'Artagnan courut chez deux gardes, avec lesquels il avait fait plus amitié qu'avec les autres, afin de les inviter à boire avec lui le délicieux petit vin d'Anjou qui venait d'arriver de Villeroi. "
"That's all well! cried d'Artagnan. "They think of me in their pleasures, as I thought of them in my troubles. Well, I will certainly drink to their health with all my heart, but I will not drink alone." And d'Artagnan went among those Guardsmen with whom he had formed greater intimacy than with the others, to invite them to enjoy with him this present of delicious Anjou wine which had been sent him from Villeroy."
