The St-Méran Family

This aristocratic family from The Count of Monte Cristo is full of ardent royalists in the highest positions of Marseilles society. This family consists of Renée de Saint-Méran, Villefort's first wife, and The Marquis and Marquise of Saint-Méran, Renée's mother and father. The Marquis and Marquise were poisoned by Heloise de Villefort, Villefort’s second wife, in her efforts to secure their fortune for her son by inheritance. Renée dies giving birth to Valentine, Villefort's daughter.
