THE STORY OF THE REAL D’ARTAGNAN, DE SANDRAZ WAS THE SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR ALEXANDRE DUMAS AND HIS THREE MUSKETEERS STORIES. Sandraz’s novelized account was written in 1700, just 27 years after D’Artagnan’s death. Sandras had served in the army before becoming a writer and had been imprisoned several times in the Bastille when Besmaux, the former companion of d’Artagnan, was warden. It was most likely from this source that he learned the details of d'Artagnan's life. Bookseller Inventory # 23914
