Read full description of the books The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal and the Real Count of Monte Cristo:

'Completely absorbing' Amanda Foreman


'Enthralling' Guardian


The son of a nobleman and a slave, General Alexandre Dumas was a black man who rose, in a world of whites, to command entire armies.



Reknowned for his strength, swordmanship, bravery and pulling victory out of the toughest situations he was feared by the enemy and loved by his men. He once fought three duals in a day.





Napoleon Bonaparte, threatened by the physical prowess and popularity of this black nobleman, conspired to bring about his downfall and Dumas found himself imprisoned in a fortress without hope of appeal.


If some of this sounds familiar, it is because Dumas's son's novels - The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo -were inspired by his achievements and tragic fate.



'A terrific story, every bit as good as one of Dumas's novels' John Preston, Mail on Sunday





'Reiss is to be congratulated for retrieving such a splendid character from the dustbin of history' Sunday Times





'Brilliant. Reiss directs a full scale production that jangles with drawn sabres, trembles with dashing deeds and resonates with the love of a son for a remarkable father' Glasgow Herald
