After everything, all the kings from the 2.nd Dynasty descend from her

Oh, oh, I don't find words to express my astonishment about this incredibly touching story, which has been new to me.

Yes, Kotroman, this is indeed a wonderful picture of the dead queen.

It seems the Painter Vieira Portuense's school is credited with painting this picture.

Elsa,
Thanks a lot for your brilliant story and for your great job!
I'd like to add the picture by Russian artist Karl Briullov (1799–1852) named "Death of Ines de Castro".

Part of her family became, later, related to our colonies in India, some members were actually "vice-reis" (don't know the correct translation into english... litterally is vice-king ). I believe it is quite interesting when you see that the rest of her family became very related to Portugal in general.
Besides these paintings, we can't forget what Luis de Camões wrote about her, in Os Lusíadas (here: http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/lus/lusbk03.htm#fr_266 , p. 97 and next. I must say that it does sound much better in portuguese but it doesn't get any smaller ahah )

The term is Vice-roy Juanita. Actually there are quite a few of her descendants still around in Portugal.
Perhaps kissing the hand was a bit grisly but you can´t blame King Pedro when you think that she had her throat slit in front of her children and he loved her dearly.

Thanks Yes, we are quite a few and some of us came from India

King Pedro made the portuguese nobility kiss her hand so they would sware their loyalty to the King, at least my teacher of History said so

I knew the love story of Inčs de Castro and King Pedro from the French tragedy The Dead Queen (La Reine morte), by Henry de Montherlant. It was recently adapted for TV with the original text. So tragic!
