Portugal’s Corpse Queen

May 15, 2023 • 40 min

Episode 97! In 1355 King Afonso the 4th of Portugal ordered his son Pedro’s lover Inês de Castro to be murdered. King Afonso was concerned that Inês’s illegitimate upbringing and Castilian roots would threaten Portugal's independence. Predictably, Pedro did not take Inês murder well. In this episode, we’ll talk about this royal family, how Pedro avenged his lover’s death, and how Pedro exhumed Inês rotten corpse to crown her queen posthumously. Listen to hear this gruesome love story.
