|Notes ||From Straparola's collection Le piacevoli notti. This is the tale 4 of night 1 (there are no actual titles to the stories). Also known as "Tebaldo", or "Doralice". |
English synopsis from the W. G. Waters translation (1894): "Tebaldo, Prince of Salerno, wishes to have his only daughter Doralice to wife, but she, through her father's persecution, flees to England, where she marries Genese the king, and has by him two children. These, having been slain by Tebaldo, are avenged by their father King Genese."
