More information

Aramitz was born of noble ancestry to Charles d'Aramitz and Catherine d'Espaloungue de Rague in Béarn, France. His father lived in Paris as maréchal-des-logis for the Musketeers of the Guard, but upon the death of Henri's grandfather, Abbé Pierre d'Aramitz, Charles returned to Béarn and took over his father's abbacy. His Grandfather was indeed a Huguenot captain, though there is no proof of Henri d'Aramitz being himself a Protestant (he married a devout Catholic).

Henri d'Aramitz's uncle, the Comte de Troisville, called him to Paris along with his cousins Armand d'Athos and Isaac de Porthau based on their reputation for swordsmanship. On this occasion Aramitz had the chance to meet the Comte d'Artagnan. The "Mémoires de M. d'Artagnan," written by Gatien de Courtilz de Sandras, later served as the basis for Alexandre Dumas's novel The Three Musketeers. In May 1640 Aramitz joined the Musketeers of the Guard.
