Artem Ovcharenko joined the Society of Musketeers of Armagnac on June 2, 2016.
For several decades, the Society of Musketeers of Armagnac – a very select order without being a brotherhood – perpetuates with rigour, solemnity and conviviality the famous motto «All for one and one for all» and promotes an art of living.
The order was launched in 1951 by a descendant of the family of Count d’Artagnan, Pierre Marquis de Montesquiou, who decided to draw attention to the home of D’Artagnan and Armagnac, having been engaged in the information and cultural support traditions of Musketeers. Candidates for the Musketeers are choosen by the General Staff, headed by the current captain Emery de Montesquieu.
The Society currently counts about 4,000 members all around the world, from South Asia to the States. The honorary members of "The International Squadron Of Musketeers" include Albert of Monaco and King of Sweden, Prince of Kent and Prince of Denmark, Leonardo DiCaprio and John Malkovich, Oleg Tabakov and Valentin Yudashkin. The organisation has no any considerations for politics or religion. Anyone who has the spirit of a musketeer is eligible to join.
