A few months ago, author Neil Stephenson stated in an interview that his novels never have female villains because for a villain to be convincing, they have to be powerful. Quelle horreur. So what did Athos do? He sentenced her to death by hanging to pay for her crimes, of course. Then he ran off and spent the next decade whining about how women are completely untrustworthy.
Can anyone really blame her for running off and marrying a count after her first husband tried to kill to her?
Milady de Winter
Villains are gonna be villainous! Pure genius! Lady de Winter takes the weaknesses of every male character she meets and uses them against him. Her ability to manipulate men, almost turning them in their own worst enemies for her own personal gain, must be pretty terrifying. She may not be powerful in the way Cardinal Richelieu is, but she is the smartest, most Machiavellian, and most resourceful character in The Three Musketeers. Dumas based Lady de Winter on historical accounts of actual women.
Another French writer, the Duc de La Rochefoucauld, related the story of an Englishwoman named Lucy Hay, the Countess of Carlisle, who was involved in numerous political intrigues in the court of Charles I and pawned a pearl necklace to support both sides during the English Civil War.
Justine de Winter (The Return of the Musketeers)
She was summarily locked in the Tower of London, but eventually managed to escape, much like our intrepid Lady de Winter. Dumas knew that women could be powerful enough to serve as formidable villains based on history, and that was a nineteenth century writer looking to 17th- and 18th-century females for inspiration!
The Three Musketeers is hardly a work of feminist literature although it does pass the Bechdel Test , but it still has believable women characters with their own motivations who drive major events of the story. Graham Greene.
