Matrimonial Projects

  • Mr. Danglars visits the Count and tells him that he wants his daughter, Eugénie, to marry Andrea Cavalcanti instead of Albert de Morcerf.
  • Danglars tells the Count that Albert is actually not a nobleman – his dad was once a poor fisherman named Fernand Mondego.
  • The Count casually mentions that he once heard of a Fernand Mondego who betrayed a man named Ali Pasha (Haydée's dad) to the Turks.
  • The Count urges Danglars to research this piece of history and the Morcerfs' connection to it.
