Once a legendary soldier, Treville has turned politician as the King’s Minister for War.
He remains a man of absolute integrity, and is deeply frustrated by the corrupt new Governor of Paris. Brusque but good-humoured, Treville is both commander and father figure to the Musketeers; their respect for him knows no bounds. Yet after four years of war, Treville has learned the tough political reality of keeping secrets – even from his trusted Musketeers.
As the Louvre plunges into crisis, the Musketeers and Treville must learn to navigate their newly treacherous relationship in the face of multiplying enemies.
