Richelieu is thwarted in this action by the three remaining Musketeers, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. The cardinal dispatches the Count De Rochefort, a nefarious former Musketeer, to kill them, and arranges for his cohort, Milady De Winter, to travel to England to make a secret treaty with the Duke of Buckingham, the true ruler of England.
