How... romantic?

Inés de Castro was a Spanish woman who fell in love with Pedro, the son of Afonso IV, king of Portugal. The king hated that his son was in love with Inés and had her murdered in 1355. Several years later, when King Afonso died and Pedro became king, Inés’s rotting body was unearthed and propped up on the queen’s throne.


And awesomeness. I'm gonna have to remember that next time my kid throws a fit.
