You french spies, you're very, very arrogant! And foolish! It's a wonder it took me so long to catch you...
~ Cagliostro to Porthos.

Cagliostro is an Italian spymaster and a minor antagonist in the 2011 movie adaption of The Three Musketeers.

He is portrayed by German actor Til Schweiger who also played Cynric.


At the beginning of the movie, he seemingly captures the musketeer Porthos in Venice and chains him onto the wall in a cellar to further interrogate him about the whereabouts of the other 2 musketeers. When Cagliostro enters the room, he arrogantly talks about the musketeer's incompetence, remarking that it is a wonder it took him so long to capture Porthos. However, Porthos lets slip that he let himself be caught intentionally. When Cagliostro asks why Porthos would do something like that Porthos answers that he did so to capture Cagliostro. Porthos then uses his immense strength to rip the chains out of the foundation and beats Cagliostro's guards unconscious with them, ending the fight with chaining up the spymaster himself. He then demands the key to Da Vinci's vault from Cagliostro which he gives up immediately. Porthos then knocks Cagliostro out and leaves the room.

Later, after the Three Musketeers entered the vault, Cagliostro enters the building with the city watch. While the men climb down into the tunnels, Cagliostro stays in the main hall, waiting for them to come back with the musketeers. However, the musketeers rigged one of the tunnel's walls with explosives, which leads to the tunnel being flooded with water from a nearby canal. The water also quickly bursts into the main hall. Cagliostro tries to run away from the flood but is quickly swallowed by the water masses.
