Daughter of the Devil

A year after König Lothar the Just defeated the Holy Roman Empire’s invasion, the gates of hell opened up in Oberbayern, but the king succeeded in closing it. A year after that, the king’s chaplain recognized the signs that little Eufemia was the daughter of the Devil, not the king, and that the king’s wife, Queen Winfrida, was a witch who had had congress with Satan. Winfrida was condemned and died in the king’s dungeons, but dark and terrible things continued to happen around Eufemia. Her nurse killed herself while pledging her eternal loyalty. Her older sister Christine died in her sleep, and it was said that she was killed by Eufemia using dark magic. The king married her off to Giano della Gherardesca, the brother of Gottifredo, the Serene Doge of Pisa, and there she has remained, apparently content, for many years.

There are those who do not believe this, though. Some say she is possessed; others say that there is no need for her to be possessed, for she is the daughter of the Devil, the voice of Satan, and the Antichrist. She is an intricate webweaver, a master of lies and deception. She is a genius who delights in tormenting and torturing people. She is ambitious, cruel, lustful, and patient, so if she appears to be idle, happily married to a minor noble in Pisa, then surely that is a cover while she sees to darker, more sinister plots — plots, no doubt, aimed at the ruin of all of Christendom.
