The least cerebral of the quartet, he compensates with his homeric strength of body and character. D'Artagnan, though heartbroken and full of regrets, finally receives the promotion he had coveted. In gratitude, she gives him a beautiful ring. D'Artagnan readily accepts Constance's request, and accompanied by the three musketeers, he begins the hazardous trip to London. The queen is terrified when she learns about the ball and hears her husband order her to wear the diamond tags.
