Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Who mutinied on Edmond and threw him in prison?

Answer: Morcerf, Danglars, and Caderousse

It would be these three who would lock up Edmond.

Morcerf's (real name Fernand Mondega) motive was jealousy and treachery. He coveted Edmond's fiancee Mercedes, and made himself rich off of Edmond's money, bankrupting their employer Max Morrel. Fernand would pay for his crimes because not only is he guilty of coveting, he is guilty of treason, theft, and murder.

Danglars' was Edmond's best friend and second mate on his ship. He was jealous of his captain and made himself rich by stealing from the poor. His motive was greed, and it would also lead to his downfall.

Caderousse started out as a respected tavern owner and became a robber. Caderousse did not care for Edmond's father and he died of starvation, and since Caderousse did not pay the funeral bill Louis got buried in an unmarked grave. Caderousse's motive was envy, but it led him into crime and would lead to his death.
2. When Edmond delivers the letter to Villefort what does he do with it?

Answer: He throws it into the fire and burns it

Villefort is a royalist but has ties to Bonapartism. His father Noirtier, a well known Bonapartist, helped Napoleon escape to Elba during the French Revolution. Villefort knew if he or his father saw the letter the French would hang him as a traitor, so he burned it and forgot about Edmond, thereby condemning him to imprisonment in Château d'If, a notorious Turkish prison off the French coast, without a trial.
3. While Edmond was in jail who did he become friends with?

Answer: Abbé Faria

Abbé Faria (known as the Mad Priest) helped Edmond escape, and told him about his treasure.

While Edmond was in jail he tunneled into Faria's cell, and they became friends. Faria taught Edmond and educated him so when he became the Count he was ready to bring his enemies down.

Faria's health declined while he was in jail and he told Edmond about Monte Cristo and the vast deposits of gold there which he was going to give to Edmond.
4. How does Edmond escape from jail?

Answer: He hides himself in a burial sack and the guards throw him off the cliff.

Answer: Caderousse

Caderousse tells Edmond what happened from the betrayal, to Morcerf coveting Mercedes and the birth of Albert, to Morcerf and Danglars bankrupting their employer, to Edmond's father being buried in an unmarked grave. Edmond then plots his revenge to take these three men out for what they did. Caderousse then becomes a robber and turns to a life of crime.

Answer: Rome

Hours earlier, Vampa tells Edmond that his contact Peppino is to be sentenced to death by guillotine along with a thief named Andrea Rondolo by mazzatello (which is an execution which involves smashing the victim's head with a sledge hammer or a mace as if they were cattle and then decapitating the condemned with a knife before the body is drawn and quartered). Edmond disguises himself as a priest, goes to the pope and gives him an emerald, and has Peppino pardoned.

Edmond and Peppino come up with a plan to get Albert kidnapped by bandits, and Edmond frees Albert and both of them buy passage on a ship headed back to Paris.
