The Count of Monte Cristo believes that those who cause extended suffering must be given prolonged suffering to produce justice. The Counts 3 opponents in which he causes penalty on are Monsieur de Villefort, Monsieur Danglars and Monsieur Fernand. The Count had 2 options, he might make it fast and easy or he could make them suffer over an extended period of time. He chose to make them suffer for a very long time.
Monsieur de Villefort entered into problem when he had an affair with Madame Danglars.
This whole affair started when Madame Danglars was going to her vacation home Auteuil and she fulfilled Monsieur de Villefort and I think they simply had the hots for each other and decided that they were going to start meeting up. At one point they decided they desired a kid. As Madame Danglars was having her and child after it was out it was assumed to be dead. When de Villefort learnt he put the infant into a box and took it out into the garden to bury it however as he was setting down the box Bertuccio jumped from the shadows and stabbed him. Bertuccio believed that he had eliminated him however he had not, he had stabbed the incorrect spot. Bertuccio then got package and faced the shadows and he opened the box believing he would find a treasure of sorts but instead discovered de Villefort’s “dead” child.
In efforts to conserve him he gave him mouth to mouth and revived him. He then takes him to a neighboring orphanage and notifies his sis that there is an infant there that she requires to go and get so she does. The baby is named Benedetto, when he matures he ends up triggering a lot of trouble and then escaping, he was also an escaped found guilty. Monsieur Danglars remains in problem with The Count because he took 5 million francs and attempted to get away with it, he is also in trouble with The Count since he is the factor The Count was apprehended and put into jail for 14 years. He was dropped in Luigi Vampa and his gang. He winds up losing every last drop of his 5 million francs since Luigi charges him to purchase food and water and it is not inexpensive. Where they are holding him is a secret location that no one would ever consider looking, in the dark and dirty catacombs. Monsieur Danglars had been held there for so long that his hair had actually turned totally white.
Fernand Mondego remains in problem with The Count because he stole Mercedes (who is the love of his life) and had a kid with her and also because he was also part of the plot along with Monsieur Danglars that had The Count took into prison for 14 years. Fernand and The Count both like Mercedes. The unusual part is that Fernand is Mercedes cousin so that would be odd if they got wed. While The Count and Mercedes are having their betrothal feast the police officers burst in revealing that they have a warrant out for Edmond Dantes’ arrest, which in turn ruins his little party he was having. Fernand and Monsieur Danglars accused Edmond/The count of being a Bonapartist which is why the cops were there to detain him. Those are the three people that Monte Cristo caused long discomfort and suffering on simply to bring justice to those who deserved it.
