The correct answer is Charles Darnay. In “A Tale of Two Cities” written by Charles Dickens, Charles Darnay is the nephew of Marquis Evrémondes. Charles Darnay is the son of Marquis Evrémondes deceased twin brother. Marquis Evrémondes is described as an arrogant and pitiless French aristocrat who was out to imprison his nephew.
He was killed by a French peasant named Gaspard who takes justice into his own hands. Gaspard killed Marquis Evrémondes as a revenge for his son that was destroyed by Marquis Evrémondes. After hiding for about a year, Gaspard was arrested and executed. He was made to pay for his actions.
In “A Tale of Two Cities,” by Charles Dickens, Marquis Evremondes, an arrogant French aristocrat who is out of favor with the royal court; however, it is never specified as to why. Charles Darnay is his nephew and the son of his deceased twin brother.
The two characters are at odds with each other with each having a different set of values. The Marquis is attempting to imprison his nephew and placing a curse on the Monseigneur to send him to the devil. The Marquis is eventually stabbed to death in his bed by an angry parent of a child he had killed with his carriage and did not even show remorse.
