The Feats & Fortunes of a Gascon Adventurer

Were the Three Musketeers real? Was the book by Alex Dumas all fiction? The Feats & Fortunes of a Gascon Adventurer distinguishes between fact and fiction the characters of Alexander Dumas's book with those of the real historical world includinb biographies. And it also has a clearly marked hoax page.

This is not an extensive site. It is definitely amateurish. But it is also just a bit fun.

From the site:

I believe that d'Artagnan has appeared in more film than any other Swashbuckler in movie history, yet too often he is ignored by today's public - not so only a few years back! However, he is still riding tall in his musketeer's saddle in such recent films as "The Three Musketeers," starring Chris O'Donnell, "The Man in the Iron Mask," and the more recent "Musketeer." Disney, once again, has rather recently taken another 'stab' at him in their animated rendention of "The Three Musketeers."
