Louis XIII had to be a Solomon. His queen produced twin male heirs - two sons of equal age with equal pretensions. Louis feared fro France. One prince means peace and safety for the state, two are a recipe for civil war and anarchy. One son had to go. Louis could not kill him, but he could hide him in an iron mask. Such is the quality of paternal mercy.

This book was originally written as part of a sequel to The Three Musketeers. But in time, it developed a life of its own, and in recent years has always been published as a separate novel that stands on its own merits.

    " Not as readable in my opinion as the Three Musketeers. If you've only seen film adaptions you don't know the story. Try the book. It seems that movie makers can't resist changing the story here to the point of "unrecognizably". Why? It's not all that happy. Still, good book, interesting story. "

    " Yes, it's about honor, swords, pistols, treachery, duplicity and death. But, Dumas is not your normal swashbuckler, because no matter how big the story, his humor and his heart always shine through. "

    " Not really what I expected - perhaps I should have read The Three Musketeers first. "

    " Still think the movie was a masterpiece "
