** Louis XIV really had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_I,_Duke_of_Orl%C3%A9ans a brother named Philippe]], but that's where the similarity ends. Philippe wasn't Louis's twin brother and his life had never been a secret.

* RevisedEnding: The book was meant to contemplate the end of the Romantic era and was pretty much a DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Athos dies of grief over his son, Porthos dies when his strength gives out during the escape plan, the plan to substitute Philippe for Louis fails and ''results'' in Philippe going into the mask in prison (he'd simply been exiled before), D'Artagnon spends the rest of his life serving Louis and Aramis uses his political clout as a Jesuit to obtain pardon and become Louis' implicitly corrupt advisor.]] The Hollywood ending applied to the film was almost exactly the opposite of the book.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Athos and D'Artagnan's friendship falls apart when D'Artagnan stays loyal to Louis [[spoiler: even after his arranging Roaul's murder to get his hands on Christine. They reconcile at the end before D'Artagnan dies, Athos having realised his old friend only served his corrupt and evil king out of paternal loyalty]].

to:

* OneLiner: Too many of these, as the Nostalgia Chick points out in her review. However, it thankfully (and surprisingly) averts BondOneLiner.

Added DiffLines:

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: Just about everything Athos says is this. Roundly mocked by the NostalgiaChick.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Does the king have narcissistic personality disorder, or is he just spoiled?

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: The sword D'Artagnan throws through the fountain does not change its course, even as it is hit by upward-spraying beams of water.
