About the Author: Alexandre Dumas

This note regards Alexandre Dumas, père, the father of Alexandre Dumas, fils (son). For the son, see Alexandre Dumas fils.

Alexandre Dumas, père (French for "father", akin to Senior in English), born Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie, was a French writer, best known for his numerous historical novels of high adventure which have made him one of the most widely read French authors in the world. Many of his novels, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, The Man in the Iron Mask, and The Vicomte de Bragelonne were serialized. Dumas also wrote plays and magazine articles, and was a prolific correspondent.

Dumas was of Haitian descent and mixed-race. His father, General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie, was born in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (present-day Haiti) to Alexandre Antoine Davy de la Pailleterie, a French nobleman, and Marie-Cessette Dumas, a black slave. At age 14 Thomas-Alexandre was taken by his father to France, where he was educated in a military academy and entered the military for what became an illustrious career.

Dumas's father's aristocratic rank helped young Alexandre Dumas acquire work with Louis-Philippe, Duke of Orléans, then as a writer, finding early success. He became one of the leading authors of the French Romantic Movement, in Paris.

En medio de la guerra civil emprendida por la aristocracia francesa durante la minoría de edad de Luis XIV, dos mujeres se enfrentan con todas sus armas: en la lucha por el poder, ponen en liza su belleza, su gran capacidad para la intriga, su amor y sus celos, sin renegar del coraje ni de sus dotes militares. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870), autor de algunas obras maestras del espíritu romántico como El conde de Montecristo, recrea una estampa de la guerra de la Fronda, con dos personajes que quieren ser los equivalentes femeninos de sus célebres mosqueteros: la astuta y encendida amante del duque d’Épernon, Nanon de Lartigues, fiel a una Ana de Austria y a un cardenal Mazarino que tratan de salvaguardar la corona para quien luego sería el Rey Sol, Luis XIV; y la rubia y valerosa Claire de Cambes, que sostiene la rebelión de los príncipes de Condé con su inteligencia y su astucia.
