Edmond Dantes by Mind Map: Edmond Dantes

1. Dantès’s beautiful and good fiancée. Though Mercédès marries another man, Fernand Mondego, while Dantès is in prison, she never stops loving Dantès. Mercédès is one of the few whom Dantès both punishes (for her disloyalty) and rewards (for her enduring love and underlying goodness).

2. Dantes Allies

2.1. Abbe Faria

2.1.1. - A priest and brilliant thinker whom Dantès meets in prison. Abbé Faria becomes Dantès’s intellectual father: during their many years as prisoners, he teaches Dantès history, science, art, and many languages. He then bequeaths to Dantès his vast hidden fortune. Abbé Faria is the most important catalyst in Dantès’s transformation into the vengeful Count of Monte Cristo.

3.3. Albert de Morcerf

3.3.1. The son of Fernand Mondego and Mercédès. Unlike his father, Albert is brave, honest, and kind. Mercédès’s devotion to both Albert and Dantès allows Monte Cristo to realize her unchanging love for him and causes him to think more deeply about his sole desire for revenge.

4. Morrel Family

4.2. Maximilien

4.2.1. The son of Monsieur Morrel. Brave and honorable like his father, Maximilian becomes Dantès’s primary beneficiary. Maximilian and his love, Valentine, survive to the end of the story as two good and happy people, personally unaffected by the vices of power, wealth, and position.

5. Danglars Family

5.1. Baron Danglars

5.1.1. A greedy, envious cohort of Mondego. Danglars hatches the plot to frame Dantès for treason.

Danglars’s obsession with the accumulation of wealth makes him an easy target for Monte Cristo, who has seemingly limitless wealth on hand to exact his revenge.

5.2. Hermine Danglars

6.7. Edouard

6.7.1. Son of Villefort, Madame Villefort killed him when Minster Villefort told he to kill herself.

6.8. Benedetto

6.8.1. The illegitimate son of Villefort and Madame Danglars. Though raised lovingly by Bertuccio and Bertuccio’s widowed sister-in-law, Benedetto nonetheless turns to a life of brutality and crime. Handsome, charming, and a wonderful liar, Benedetto plays the part of Andrea Cavalcanti in one of Dantès’s elaborate revenge schemes.
