Another Competition

First of all, you still have two days to win one of jemck's wonderful Hadrumal Crisis novels: the marquis and I will be selecting the two winners on Tuesday. The details are here

Secondly, it's just over two weeks until the official publication date for The Grass King's Concubine but I have two advance copies to give away. This time, it's a Musketeers'-related trivia quiz.

There's a two-part question, plus a special bonus question for a mystery prize. I will be screening replies until Wednesday, when I'll put all the answers into a hat and draw the two winners.

Here's the main question: you need to answer both parts

What is Aramis's real name according to Alexandre Dumas pere? And what is the name of the historical figure on whom he was based?

The bonus question, for the mystery prize (you don't have to get the other question right to win this one): in The Three Musketeers, Dumas tells us that Athos is the pseudonym for the Comte de la Fere. Elsewhere in his writings, Dumas also gave Athos a first name. What is it?
