The Kingdom of France faces bankruptcy from King Louis XIV’s wars against the Dutch, causing French citizens to starve. As the country moves toward revolution, King Louis prepares for war. At this point, the four musketeers have gone their separate ways; Aramis is now a priest, Porthos is a womanizing drunkard, and Athos has retired to his farm. Only D’Artagnan has remained loyal to the musketeers and is now the captain. Athos’ only son, Raoul, aspires to join the musketeers. At a palace festival, Louis sets his eyes on Christine Bellefort, Raoul’s fiancée. He immediately plots to send Raoul to the battlefront, where he is killed soon after. Aware that Louis orchestrated his son’s death, Athos renounces his allegiance to the king. After an assassination attempt on Louis by the Jesuit order is foiled by D’Artagnan, Louis instructs Aramis to hunt down and kill their leader.

In response, Aramis summons Porthos, Athos, and D’Artagnan for a secret meeting in which he reveals he is the Jesuit’s secret leader and has a plan to depose Louis. Athos and Porthos agree to join him, but D’Artagnan refuses. Athos brands him a traitor and threatens him with death should they ever meet again. Meanwhile, Louis seduces Christine, who later begins to suspect his part in Raoul’s death. The musketeers infiltrate the Île Sainte-Marguerite prison and free a prisoner wearing an iron mask. The prisoner is taken to the countryside, where Aramis reveals he is Philippe, King Louis’ brother. Their mother, Queen Anne, gave birth to identical twins. Louis XIII, to avoid dynastic warfare between his sons, sent Philippe to live in the countryside and grow up without knowing his true identity.
