French playwright and novelist. His first success was as a writer of melodramatic plays, incl. Napolé on Bonaparte (1831) and Antony (1831). His immensely popular novels, set in colorful historical backgrounds, include The Three Musketeers (1844), a romance about four swashbuckling heroes in the age of Cardinal Richelieu, and its sequel Twenty Years After (1845); The Count of Monte Cristo (1844-45); and The Black Tulip (1850). His illegitimate son Alexandre Dumas (1824-1895), called Dumas fils, is best known for his play La Dame aux Camé lias (1848), the basis of G. Verdi's opera La Traviata and later of several films titled Camille.
