Published in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo would become one of the most popular works of literature of its time. In this story, the reader is taken on a wild adventure as they transverse the world of Edmond Dantes, a man that has been wrongfully imprisoned in the gloomy Château d’If.
Dantes' time at the château has not been a complete waste. During his imprisonment, he hears of hidden treasure on the island of Monte Cristo. With grim determination, Edmond Dantes plans to escape and find the treasure.
There is some speculation that Alexandre Dumas was inspired to write The Count of Monte Cristo based on a true to life case of wrongful imprisonment. When released as a serial in the 1840s, The Count of Monte Cristo was wildly successful and is still one of the most beloved stories of all time.
