Under orders of the French President, Jacques Chirac, the body of Alexandre Dumas was exhumed from the cemetery at Villers-Cotterêts in Pacardie, and in a televised ceremony his new coffin flanked by four Republican Guards costumed as the Musketeers - Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D’Artagnan was transported in a solemn procession to the Panthéon of Paris.

This is the great mausoleum where French luminaries are interred. Among those buried in its necropolis are Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Émile Zola, Jean Moulin, Marie Skłodowska-Curie, Louis Braille, Jean Jaurès and Soufflot, its architect.
