These historical novels depict the conspiracy by the certain party of the nobility against the regent of France Philippe d'Orléans. Raoul d'Harmental, young aristocrat who came to Paris in 1711, is an adventurer, rather touchy and impetuous. After the king's death, D'Harmental is involved in the conflict between the regent and the party of malcontents who wished to take him down. The duchess, whose husband was deprived of his rights by the regent, makes proposals in this direction. D'Harmental must remove the Duke of Orleans and take him to Spain.
The Regent's Daughter is a sequel to The Conspirators. Philippe d'Orléans, regent of France, although having a hard time with his two daughters and a son, wants to take care of another young girl, his illegitimate and hidden daughter, Helene de Chaverny, raised in a convent as an orphan. Helene, who ignores his parentage, is in love with Chevalier Gaston de Chanley, a conspirator involved in a plot against the regent. Young lovers, eager to get married, head towards the Paris unaware of the dramatic tangle that is played around them.
Alexandre Dumas, père (1802-1870) was a French writer whose works have been translated into nearly 100 languages and he is one of the most widely read French authors. His most famous works are The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.

Autorentext
Alexandre Dumas der Ältere (1802-70) wächst als Sohn eines napoleonischen Generals in der nordfranzösischen Provinz auf. Früh verwaist und arm, doch von seinen Talenten überzeugt, begibt er sich als Neunzehnjähriger nach Paris, wo er zum Theater will. Sein Kapital: eine schöne Handschrift, ein paar verwilderte Rebhühner und eine schier unerschöpfliche Phantasie. Die Theaterstücke, die er zunächst schreibt, sind heute vergessen. Doch zwanzig Jahre später, 1844, ist er mit 'Der Grafen von Monte Christo' der König des literarischen Feuilletons. Denn Dumas hatte den Nerv des Leserpublikums getroffen. Er bot eine intrigenreiche Handlung, Spannung, Illustion auf einem geschichtlichen Hintergrund, den man in groben Zügen kannte. Er bot historische Wahrheit, phantasievoll aufgefüllt mit Dichtung, und mischte ihr jenen feinen Schuss Ironie bei, der seine Romane bis heute so lesenswert macht.

Chapter II.
The Meeting.
Table of Contents

As soon as Lafare, Fargy, and Ravanne saw their adversaries appear at the corner of the path, they walked to meet them. Arrived at ten paces from each other, they all took off their hats and bowed with that elegant politeness which was a characteristic of the aristocracy of the eighteenth century, and advanced some steps thus bareheaded with a smile on their lips, so that to the eyes of the passer-by, ignorant of the cause of their réunion, they would have appeared like friends enchanted to meet.

"Gentlemen," said the Chevalier d'Harmental, to whom the first word by right belonged, "I hope that neither you nor we have been followed; but it is getting late, and we might be disturbed here. I think it would be wise in us to find a more retired spot, where we shall be more at ease to transact the little business which we have in hand."

"Gentlemen," said Ravanne, "I know one which will suit you, a hundred yards from here-a true cover."

"Come, let us follow the child," said the captain; "innocence leads to safety."

Ravanne turned round, and examined, from head to foot, our friend with the yellow ribbons.

"If you are not previously engaged, my strapping friend," said he, in a bantering tone, "I claim the preference."

"Wait a moment, Ravanne," interrupted Lafare; "I have some explanations to give to Monsieur d'Harmental."

"Monsieur Lafare," replied the chevalier, "your courage is so well known, that the explanations you offer me are a proof of delicacy for which I thank you; but these explanations would only delay us uselessly, and we have no time to lose."

"Bravo!" cried Ravanne, "that is what I call speaking, chevalier. As soon as we have cut each other's throats, I hope you will grant me your friendship. I have heard you much spoken of in good quarters, and have long wished to make your acquaintance."

"Come, come, Ravanne," said Fargy, "since you have undertaken to be our guide, show us the way."

Ravanne sprang into the wood like a young fawn: his five companions followed. At the end of about ten minutes' walking, during which the six adversaries had maintained the most profound silence, either from fear of being heard, or from that natural feeling which makes a man in the moment of danger reflective for a time, they found themselves in the midst of a glade, surrounded on all sides by a screen of trees.

"Well," said Ravanne, looking round him in a satisfied manner, "what do you say to the locality?"

"I say that if you boast of having discovered it," said the captain, "you are a strange kind of Christopher Columbus. If you had told me it was here you were coming, I could have guided you with my eyes shut."--"Well," replied Ravanne, "we will endeavor that you shall leave it in the same manner."

"It is with you that my business lies, Monsieur de Lafare," said D'Harmental, throwing his hat on the ground.

"Yes, monsieur," replied the captain of the guards, following the example of the chevalier; "and at the same time I know that nothing could give me more honor and more pain than a rencontre with you, particularly for such a cause."

D'Harmental smiled as a man on whom this flower of politeness was not lost, but his only answer was to draw his sword.

"It appears, my dear baron," said Fargy, addressing himself to Valef, "that you are on the point of setting out for Spain."

"I ought to have left last night; and nothing less than the pleasure I promised myself in seeing you this morning would have detained me till now, so important is my errand."

"Diable! you distress me," said Fargy, drawing, "for if I should have the misfortune to retard you, you are the man to bear me deadly malice."

"Not at all. I should know that it was from pure friendship, my dear count," replied Valef; "so do your best, I beg, for I am at your or
