24. Constance Bonacieux, this is my name
And though I was so pure and smart
I couldn't stop the "evil dame"
And left my love in broken heart
I'm telling you it's not a lie
Now you tell me: How did I die ?
From Quiz How Did I Die ?
Answer: Milady poisoned me
Constance was the innocent victim of an evil plot. Wanting to intimidate d'Artagnan, who had ruined his plans, Richelieu ordered the kidnapping of Constance Bonacieux, the musketeer's sweetheart. He had her imprisoned in Mantes. Thanks to the queen, who cared for Constance and managed to obtain a written order from the king, the girl was taken to the Monastery in Bethune. But fate brought Milady in the same place. Having the chance to get revenged at d'Artagnan whom she hated from all her heart, Milady tricked Madame Bonacieux. She told her that the Cardinal had sent his guards after her and that she had to leave immediately. When the sound of galloping horses was aproaching the monastery, Milady said: "It's the cardinal's guards. Let's run away !". Actually, it was d'Artagnan who was coming to see his dear Constance. Madame Bonacieux, with all the excitement, no longer had the courage to run away. Her feet melted and she fell on her knees. To end her revenge, Milady gave her a poisoned drink, telling her that it was actually an invigorating potion. Constance Bonacieux died in poor d'Artagnan's arms.
