Cardinal Richelieu photo
Cardinal Richelieu is a scheming, ruthless and pragmatic, the Cardinal is the most powerful man in France.

In the eyes of the Musketeers, is a villain, a power-hungry dictator whose ultimate aim is nothing less than complete control of France. But in his own eyes the Cardinal is bringing much needed order to an outlaw society. He knows the King’s weaknesses all too well and understands that someone must take on the burden of government in his place. But nevertheless in his own way the Cardinal is loyal to the crown. Dry and witty, capable of great charm, he is also calculating and mercilessly cruel in implementing his vision. Despite his cool exterior the Cardinal is a man of carefully hidden passions.
