Armand de Sillègue d'Athos d'Autevielle

Armand, Seigneur de Sillègue, d'Athos, et d'Autevielle ("Lord of Sillègue, Athos, and Autivielle"), better known as Armand d'Athos (c. 1615 – December 21, 1643), was a Gascon black musketeer of the Maison du Roi in 17th century France. Athos was the first cousin once removed to the Comte de Troisville and first cousin of Isaac de Porthau, and with Henri d'Aramitz and the latter formed the "three brothers".[1][2] He served as the inspiration for Alexandre Dumas's character of the same name in the d'Artagnan Romances.


Perhaps a nobleman,[3] Athos was born in Béarn, France around 1615 to Seigneur Adrien de Sillègue d'Athos d'Autivielle de Cassaber and the sister of the Comte de Troisville.[1]

According to the Mémoires of the Comte d'Artagnan, d'Artagnan saved Athos's life at the Pré aux Clercs.[1] After joining the Musketeers of the Guard in 1640, Athos maintained his friendship with d'Artagnan.[1]

Athos was killed in combat on December 21, 1643, and was buried at the Pré aux Clercs near Paris.[1][4]
