When they get the job done, Milady takes the blueprints and gives it to the Duke of Buckingham. When they return home, the Musketeers are forced to break up. At this time, D'Artagnan is introduced as leaving home to go join the Musketeers. However, he is not aware that they have been disbanded. When he arrives in Paris he first meets the Musketeers and angers all three of them. This causes him to challenge them to duels. When the first duel is set to begin, D'Artagnan realizes that these three men are the Musketeers he aspires to be. This realization sparks the Musketeers to reunite. At this point they are brought before the King and Queen of France. The Queen is impressed with them, and they are invited to a party later that evening. Also, the Duke of Buckingham is going to the party. He arrives on an airship that was inspired by the blueprints they were stealing earlier. Meanwhile, there is a plan brewing at the party to frame the Queen as having an affair with the Duke of Buckingham. This will cause the King of France to declare war on England. Someone finds out about the plan, and asks the Three Musketeers and D'Artagnan to help thwart the plan.
