Synopsis

The young King Louis XIV becomes intrigued with the beautiful Christine and sends her suitor, Raoul, to the front for an almost certain death. When he is killed, Louis earns the hatred of Raoul's father, the former faithful musketeer Athos. Athos is not alone in his hatred of the king as the entire country has grown weary of his excesses. Louis depends upon another former musketeer, D'Artagnan, to kill the ringleader of the rebellion. What Louis does not know is that D'Artagnan is also his mother's lover. Things are getting out of hand when the king's trusted priest, Aramis, another former musketeer, gathers together his former collegues with a plan to change the course of history. Athos and Porthos join in a plot to spring out of prison a man who, for six years, has lived in his cell with his head in an iron mask. The man is, in fact, Philippe, the younger twin of Louis XIV.
