Balsamo The Magician is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, inspired by the life and personality of Count Cagliostro. This is the first part of a series entitled "Memoirs of a doctor" which continues with The Queen's Necklace, Pitou and La Comtesse de Charny.
Regal and dazzlingly beautiful, Mary was often misunderstood yet revered for the mystery of her life. Succumbing to the irresistible impulses of passion, she gambled away her throne for love. Unbelievable acts of abduction, rape and even murder were performed at her behest; she stopped at nothing. Ultimately, the deadly game of power she played…
The history of the actual Count Cagliostro, an Italian adventurer and occultist, is shrouded in rumour, propaganda, and mysticism. He is said to have played some part in the Affair of the Diamond Necklace which involved Marie Antoinette and Prince Louis de Rohan, and was held in the Bastille for nine months but finally acquitted, when no evidence could be found connecting him to the affair.
Alexandre Dumas used Cagliostro in several of his novels, especially in Balsamo The Magician.
