Fernand used people to gain power, and was eventually destroyed by those people. While serving Ali Pasha, Fernand surrendered to Ali Pasha's enemies which completely destroyed Ali Pasha. After ruining the Ali Pasha, Fernand sold the Ali Pasha's wife and daughter into slavery. Fernand then took the title of the Count of Morcerf. Danglars, whose daughter was going to marry Fernand's son, Albert, did not want to have his daughter marry someone whose name was not rightfully earned. Danglars then had the proof published in a newspaper. At the trial, the Ali Pasha's daughter, Haydee, proved the evidence true.
