Crown of love and death

Standard

I will never hear her joyful steps and the rustle of her heavy skirts rushing to my arms, the Coimbra sun playing with the reflections of her hair, the hair I kissed so many times. Never again will I hear her loving voice whispering my name, her laughter, her timid sighs. Her voice was silenced forever, robbed from me, ripped off from my heart, as I will rip off yours straight from your chest, and watch you die.

By my power, you all shall kneel, you all must kiss her decaying hand, and swear your allegiance to Dona Inês de Castro, my queen, your queen, the queen you have despised and cruelly murder.

The Mondego River will sing sad sonnets for her name on the warm summer nights, and the blood she shed will mark the Fountain of Tears for the ages to come, for nobody can ever forget how much I loved Dona Inês, and how unfairly her life was destroyed.

My text is based on a legend surrounding the death of Inês de Castro, lover and allegedly secret wife of prince Pedro of Portugal. She was legitimized as queen after her death, when the heartbroken prince became Pedro I, King of Portugal. This is as far as documented history goes.

Legend claims that he had her exhumed and forced his nobles to kiss her hand and swear allegiance to her as queen, and that he executed her killers by ripping off their hearts, one through the chest and the other one through the back. None of this confirmed, but remains as one of the most tragic real life love stories of Portuguese history.

They rest buried together, their sumptuous marble coffins facing each other, so that they will see each other face to face when they’re awaken, on Judgement Day.
