Period makeups: Milady de Winter

Milady de Winter, often referred to as simply Milady, is the most memorable character in the novel The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, père. Branded for theft from churches, she survived by seducing and then destroying rich men, including Athos, until she found employment with Cardinal Richelieu as his spy, assassin, and messenger. She came to a deservedly bad end.

Then there are other characters who stand-in for Milady; like her daughter, Justine, in The Return of the Musketeers or Eglantine de Rochefort in La fille de d'Artagnan.
