  • My homage to Ines de Castro (Spain 1325 – Portugal 1355). She is best known as lover and posthumously declared lawful wife of King Pedro I of Portugal, and therefore Queen of Portugal.
Her murder at the orders of Afonso, Peter’s bloody revenge on her killers, and the legend of the coronation of her exhumed corpse by Peter, have made Inês de Castro a frequent subject of art, music, and drama through the ages.

She starred one of the great portuguese love stories. Inês de Castro, was a Galician noblewoman born of a Portuguese mother. She is best known as lover and posthumously-recognized wife of King Peter I of Portugal
In the life of Ines de Castro are two very distinct parts: the legend, which has sent her name to all the people, and real history, that all the investigations of the modern school have not yet been able to fully understand.
The terrible history of D. Pedro and D. Ines, passed in the convulsive Portugal, from the early fourteenth century. The Portuguese King never accepted that his son Pedro, fell in love with Ines, and that after the death of his wife, maintain loving relationships with her, which were born several children. After the secret wedding of Ines and Pedro, the king and the Portuguese nobility kill D. Ines.

  • The infant came to the throne and legend has it that he had Inês’s body exhumed from her grave and forced the entire court to swear allegiance to their new queen by kissing the corpse’s hand. She was later buried at the Monastery of Alcobaça where her coffin can still be seen, opposite Peter’s so that, according to the legend, at the Last Judgment Peter and Inês can look at each other as they rise from their graves. Both marble coffins are exquisitely sculpted with scenes from their lives and a promise by Peter that they would be together até ao fim do mundo (until the end of the world).
