Count Of Monte Cristo
There are many subplots involving The Count of Monte Cristo's adversaries. The
first one started out in Rome where the count met two young men, Albert de

Morcerf and Franz d'Epinay. The Count became a great friend to the two young men
and even saved Albert's life when the "Italian bandit," Luigi Vampa,
captured him. Luckily Vampa was a loyal friend to the count and obeyed his
command to release Albert. Albert eventually introduced the count to Paris
society and to his many friends. The next subplot was when The Count of Monte

Cristo bought the house in Auteuil. His servant Bertuccio had a history with
that house that involved Monsieur de Villefort. He later told that story to the
count and introduced Benedetto, which later became Andrea Cavalcanti. Benedetto
was the son of Villefort and Madame Danglars, which was presumed dead and was
burried and left to die if Bertuccio did not dig the baby up. Benedetto later
led a life of crime and left Bertuccio, who raised him. The next subplot was
when Benedetto was introduced to the Count of Monte Cristo as Andrea Cavalcanti.

He took on this role and was given a fake father. Andrea then became the good
friend of the count's, mainly because the count was to supply him with a great
amount of wealth. The next subplot was when the count created the false telegram
that "King Don Carlos escaped the vigilance excercised over him in Bourges
and has returned to Spain across the Catalonian frontier." This caused many
people to sell their Spanish bonds, including Baron Danglars, and to lose a lot
of money. The next subplot is when The Count of Monte Cristo invited all of his
"friends" to the country house he bought in Auteuil. This house
haunted two guests, Monsieur de Villefort and Madame Danglars because this was
the house which Madame Danglars gave birth to Benedetto and where Villefort
barried him. The count showed the guests the garden which the baby was buried.

Then he told everyone a false story that he discovered a box which contained a
skeleton of a baby, but Villefort knew that was a lie because he later went back
to check on the box after he was stabbed by Bertuccio, which was mentioned in

Bertuccio's story. He later told Madame Danglars what he knew and that arroused
suspicion towards The Count of Monte Cristo. The next subplot was when members
of the Villefort family started dying. The first one to die was Monsieur de

Saint-Meran, Villefort's father-in-law. The next was Madame de Saint-Meran,

Villefort's mother-in-law. A doctor later discovered that they were poisoned and
later Barrois, Monsieur Noirtier's servant, was poisoned. The next subplot was
when Andrea was later suprised when Caderousse went up to Andrea just as he was
going home after the dinner at the count's country house. Caderousse later
agreed that he would never reveal Andrea's true identity to the Paris society
for a moderate sum each month which Andrea was forced to pay him. Both of them
later met up with each other where Caderousse requested more money each month
when Andrea gave him the idea to rob The Count of Monte Cristo. Caderousse
decided to break into the count's house when he would be out of town but Andrea
sent a letter to the count telling him of Caderousse's plan. The count
eventually catches him in the act and reveals his identy as Edmond Dantes and
lets Caderousse go. As he was leaving, Andrea saw that the count just let him go
and he killed Caderousse himself. The next subplot was when the count published
in the newspaper that The Count of Morcerf (Fernand Mondego) betrayed Ali Pasha
in Yanina. Albert read this article when he was away with the count and he
hurried back to Paris. Fernand was later tried and found guilty due to Haydee
and the evidence she brought forth. Fernand's name was scarred and he was
destroyed. Albert later challenged Monte Cristo to a duel after he found out who
was behind the downfall of his father. They both later forgave each other due to

Mercedes's convincing and she and Albert left Paris together. The next subplot
was when Valentine was poisoned, but not before Monsieur Noirtier made her
immune to the poison because he suspected that she would be next. Maximilien
found this out and asked the count for help. He later found out that Maximilien
loved Valentine and told him that she wouldn't die. The
