For someone who wrote such incredible stories, how close did fiction replicate the truth? This Alexandre had his father die when he was 4. The father was a banished and ignored war hero from the Napoleonic wars. The son recreated a lifetime of adventures based in many ways on the exploits of his father. Come and find out who the real Count of Monte Cristo was. Come and find out about the real lives of the Three Musketeers and how their bond defined the “good guys.” What kind of life and man was this who put all of these wonderful heroes into our literary culture?
