The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo are two of the novels by Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) that have made him one of the most widely read French authors. Of aristocratic background, Dumas evolved form being a successful playwright to novelist, and his works were received to critical acclaim in Russia, where he settled for a few years in the 1850's. His works have been translated into around 100 languages, and in 2002 his body was re-interred in Paris's Panthéon.
