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:

 Voyant cela, le gentilhomme tira son épée et fondit sur d'Artagnan; mais il avait affaire à forte partie. En trois secondes d'Artagnan lui fournit trois coups d'épée en disant à chaque coup: «Un pour Athos, un pour Porthos, un pour Aramis.» Au troisième coup, le gentilhomme tomba comme une masse.
Seeing this, the gentleman drew his sword, and sprang upon d'Artagnan; but he had too strong an adversary. In three seconds d'Artagnan had wounded him three times, exclaiming at each thrust, One for Athos, one for Porthos; and one for Aramis!" At the third hit the gentleman fell like a log."
