Sylum Inspiration: Peter I of Portugal

Integridad: Member

In 1328, Peter’s father, Afonso IV arranged for the marriage of his eldest daughter, Maria, to Alfonso XI of Castile. In 1334, she bore him a son, who ultimately became Peter of Castile. However, Maria returned home to her father in Portugal in 1335 because her royal husband soon after their marriage had begun a long affair with the beautiful and newly widowed Leonor de Guzman, which the Castilian king refused to end. Alfonso’s cousin, Juan Manuel, Prince of Villena, had been rebuffed by the Castilian king in 1327 when the two-year child marriage between his daughter Constanza (granddaughter of James II of Aragon) and Alfonso had been annulled to clear the way for the marriage to Maria. For two years Juan Manuel had waged war against the Castilians, who had kept Constanza hostage, until Bishop John del Campo of Oviedo mediated a peace in 1329.

Enraged by Alfonso’s infidelity and mistreatment of his lawful wife, her father made a new alliance with the powerful Castilian aristocrat. Afonso married his son and heir, Peter, to Constanza, thereby allying himself with Juan Manuel. When Constanza arrived in Portugal in 1340, Inês de Castro, the beautiful and aristocratic daughter of a prominent Galicianfamily (with links albeit through illegitimacy, to the Portuguese and Castilian royal families), accompanied her as her lady-in-waiting.

Peter soon fell in love with Inês, and the two conducted a long love affair that lasted until Inês’s murder in 1355. Constanza died in 1345, weeks after giving birth to Fernando, who eventually became the first of Peter’s sons to succeed him as king of Portugal. The scandal of Peter’s affair with Inês, and its political ramifications, caused Afonso to banish Inês from court after Constanza died. Peter refused to marry any of the princesses his father suggested as a second wife; and the king refused to allow his son to marry Inês as Peter wanted. The two aristocratic lovers began living together in secret. According to the chronicle of Fernão Lopes, during this period, Peter began giving Inês’s brothers, exiles from the Castilian court, important positions in Portugal and they became the heir-apparent’s closest advisors. This alarmed Afonso. He worried that upon his death, civil war could tear the country apart, or the Portuguese throne would fall into Castilian hands, either as Juan Manuel fought to avenge his daughter’s honor, or the de Castro brothers supported their sister. Peter claimed that he had married Inês against his father’s orders. In any event, in 1355, Afonso sent three men to find Inês at the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Velha in Coimbra, where she was detained, and they decapitated her in front of one of her young children. Enraged, Peter revolted against his father. Afonso defeated his son within a year, but died shortly thereafter, and Peter succeeded to the throne in 1357. The love affair and father-son conflict inspired more than twenty operas and many writers, including: the Portuguese national epic Os Lusíadas by Luís de Camões, the Spanish “Nise lastimosa” and “Nise laureada” (1577) by Jerónimo Bermúdez and ‘Reinar despues de morir’ by Luís Vélez de Guevara, as well as “Inez de Castro” by Mary Russell Mitford and Henry de Montherlant’s French drama La Reine morte.

It was after after the loss Inês he was approached by his grandmother Elizabeth, who told him about Vampires, and told him she was sure Inês was Peter’s Mate.

He agreed to be Turned.

Sylum Inspiration: Elizabeth of Aragon

Integridad: Member

Born in 1271 into the royal house of Aragon, Elizabeth was the daughter of Infante Peter (later King King Peter III) and his wife Constance of Sicily and the sister of three kings: Alfonso II and James II of Aragon and Frederick III of Sicily.

Elizabeth showed an early enthusiasm for her faith. She said the full Divine Office daily, fasted and did other penance, as well as attended twice-daily choral Masses. Religious fervor was common in her family, as she could count several members of her family who were already venerated as saints. The most notable example is her great-aunt, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, after whom she was named.

Her marriage to King Denis of Portugal was arranged in 1281 when she was 10 years old, receiving the towns of Óbidos, Abrantes and Porto de Mós as part of her dowry. It was only in 1288 that the wedding was celebrated, when Denis was 26 years old, while Elizabeth was 17. Denis, a poet and statesman, was known as the Rei Lavrador (English: Farmer King), because he planted a large pine forest near Leiria to prevent the soil degradation that threatened the region.

Elizabeth quietly pursued the regular religious practices of her youth and was devoted to the poor and sick. Naturally, such a life was a reproach to many around her and caused ill will in some quarters. Eventually, her prayer and patience succeeded in converting her husband, who had been leading a sinful life.

Elizabeth took an active interest in Portuguese politics and was a decisive conciliator during the negotiations concerning the Treaty of Alcañices, signed by Denis and Sancho IV of Castile in 1297 (which fixed the borders between the two countries). In 1304, the Queen and Denis returned to Spain to arbitrate between Fernando IV of Castile and James II of Aragon, brother of Elizabeth.[4]

She had two children: Constance, who married King Ferdinand IV of Castile and Afonso, who became King Alfoso IV of Portugal.

Elizabeth would serve as intermediary between her husband and Afonso, during the Civil War between 1322 and 1324. The Infante greatly resented the king, whom he accused of favoring the king’s illegitimate son, Afonso Sanches. Repulsed to Alenquer, which supported the Infante, Denis was prevented from killing his son through the intervention of the Queen. As legend holds, in 1323, Elizabeth, mounted on a mule, positioned herself between both opposing armies on the field of Alvalade in order to prevent the combat. Peace returned in 1324, once the illegitimate son was sent into exile, and the Infante swore loyalty to the king.

It was after her husband’s death, she discovered Wenceslaus’ secret, who had come to pay his respects.  They had met a few times over the years, both enjoying their discussion on faith and devotion.

He told her about Vampires and what it was like to live the life of a ‘Saint’.  She thought about his story, and adored his Mate Cinderella.  She prayed and soon knew her answer.

Sylum Inspiration: Aguilar de Nerha

Integridad: Hunter

Aguilar and his twin brother Callum were born October 21st in the year of our lord 1460 AD and was in Masyaf.

They’re parents were Assassins, the little they knew of them, was that their father, Sebastiano was from Spain and their mother, Brigit, who was from Ireland.  Their father was trained at Masyaf, who on a mission, fell in love with Brigit, brought her back and trained her.  The two had been killed during the Spanish Inquisition, a year after the boys had been born.  They ended up raised by the Assassin Order, and trained to follow in their parents footsteps.

When they set out on their own missions, Aguilar went to Spain, while Callum went to Ireland.

Aguilar took over the missions their parents had been killed.  Hunting down Templars that were using the Spanish Inquisition for their own goals.

He ended up meeting Maria, saving her from a local ‘Inquisitor’.  She had made it clear that she wouldn’t bow to the the false church, and become their whore.  Aguilar fell for her instantly, the two ended up married six months later – solidify his cover as a Silk Merchant.

She knew about his Assassin work, and patched him up when he would return home.   Over the years she bore him three daughters – but refused to let him train any of them.

While working on a mission with Maximus, Aguilar was mortally wounded.  There was no doubt in his mind, he would be Turned.

Sylum Inspiration: Diego de la Vega Sánchez

Integridad: Hunter

(Continuing our theme of ‘Saved from the Brink’)

Alejandro stood on his own, and sent Diego back to Integridad Kin Clan where he was needed, and he continued his role as Zorro, taking the name Don Diego de la Vega Sánchez, a mix of his adopted father, along with his mother’s sir name, the only thing he remembered of her.

Always a man of passion, he fell for the Governor’s daughter Elena Montero, soon stealing her away from him. The Governor and Elena’s future husband set out to bring her back and destroy Diego. In the ensuing fight, Elena was mortally wounded and Diego’s Hacienda was destroyed, but he was able to save Elena by taking her down into the basement where he trained. After seeking her permission to save her, she gave her consent and Diego Turned her.

Elena stayed with him for a while, before heading to Spain to train with the Diego senior.

A few years later he met Timothy Quinn. The friendship between the two developed into a decades-long love affair that lasted until Timothy’s Childe Bryon Hanson was killed in New York. The two remained close friends.

Diego settled into New Orleans, taking the position as Head of Security for Nicolaus Valerius Meridius. He enjoyed living in New Orleans and serving on the City Council.

While traveling to meet up with Hunters James Hickok and Noah Dixon, he found himself resting in a small town. It wasn’t hard for him to figure out the citizens were scared of something. His old instincts kicked in, and he found himself in the middle of a Range War. While Hunting down one group he came upon the Doctor’s house, finding Gregory House laying on the floor bleeding out. The irony was he was cursing Diego’s old lover. He gave the doctor a new opportunity, which he took. Diego wasn’t sure if he regretted that decision or not.

He always made sure his two kids were safe and secure, and when House telegraphed him about finding his Mate on the front lines, Diego telegraphed back to Claim them. He never wanted to see his Childe go through what he witnessed with Bryon and Riddick.  OrTimothy during the Civil War.

He was happy for Timothy when he came to the Manor with his new Mate Horatio Caine, and did everything in his power to protect his Family, his friends, and his Clan.  He really wasn’t too surprised that one of Speed’s co-workers was his Mate; fate seemed to love or hate him, he was never sure which.

During the battle with Richelieu, Diego was severely wounded.

He requested from Nico that he take time off and travel back to Spain to recoup, handing over his job as Head of Security to Horatio Caine.  Nico granted his request and made sure he knew his family and home would be waiting for him.

When he had heard about Nick’s kidnapping he sent word to him, sending his condolences over Aubrey and to apologize for not being there.  Nico told him to watch over Brigid Maturin, as she had lost her father.

Diego felt his failure deeply when Brigid was killed in a crowded street.  He stayed in Spain, constantly being told he was hiding.  It wasn’t until after the Colosseum Incident that he was ready to contact Nico about returning as a Hunter.  He was surprised when Calleigh showed up at his door, wearing nothing but a smile and high heels – giving him one last time to take what was his.

He wasn’t that stupid.

Diego has been training Calleigh to be a Hunter, and she excels at it.

Sylum Inspiration: Álvaro de Bazán

Integridad: Hunter

 

Álvaro de Bazán was born in Granada, southern Spain.

His grandfather, Álvaro de Bazán, took part in the conquest of Granada in 1492, and his father, Álvaro de Bazán the Elder, took part together with Giovanni Andrea Doria and others marines in the recapture of Tunis in 1535, and was distinguished in the service of Charles V, by whom he was made general of the galleys or commander-in-chief of the Spanish naval forces in the Mediterranean.

The future admiral followed his father in his youth, and was employed in the high command of the Spanish navy at a very early age. At the age of eight he was appointed “Military Governor and captain of the fortress and city of Gibraltar”. His command however was via his father who was in commands of the galleys of Spain. It has been speculated that this unusual appointment was intended to show Charles V’s confidence but the commander of the galleys did not share that confidence and he suggested to no effect that Gibraltar’s Line Wall Curtain be extended to the southern tip of the rock. He was a member of the Military Order of Santiago (St. James). In 1564, he aided in the capture of Peñón de Vélez de la Gomera, and commanded the division of galleys employed to blockade Tetuan, and to suppress the piracy carried on from that port. The service is said to have been successfully performed. Bazán certainly earned the confidence of Philip II, by whom he was appointed to command the galleys of Naples in 1568. This post brought him into close relations with John of Austria, when the Holy League was formed against the Turks in 1570.

During the operations which preceded and followed the Battle of Lepanto, Bazán was always in favor of the more energetic course. In the battle he commanded the reserve division, and his prompt energy averted a disaster when Uluj Ali, who commanded the left wing of the Turks, outmaneuvered the commander of the Christian right, Gian Andrea Doria, the nephew of his old comrade Andrea Doria, and broke the Allied line. He accompanied Don John of Austria at the taking of Tunis in the following year.

When Philip II enforced his claim as heir to the crown of Portugal in 1580–1581, Santa Cruz held a naval command. But António, Prior of Crato, an illegitimate representative of the former Portuguese royal family, who conducted some popular resistance to the crowning of what was seen as a foreign king, continued to hold the islands of the Azores. António was supported by a number of French adventurers under Philip Strozzi, a Florentine exile in the service of France. Santa Cruz was sent as “Admiral of the Ocean” to drive the pretender and his friends away in 1582. Badly outnumbered, he won the Battle of Ponta Delgada off Terceira Island against a loose confederation of Portuguese, French, English and Dutch adventurers and privateers, which decided the struggle for the Azores in favor of the Spanish Habsburgs.

Santa Cruz, who recognized that England presented a grave threat to Spain’s empire, became a zealous advocate of war. A letter written by him to King Philip from Angra do Heroísmo in Terceira, on August 9, 1583, contains the first definite suggestion of the Spanish Armada.

Santa Cruz himself was to have commanded. His plans, schemes and estimates occupy a conspicuous place in the documents concerning the Armada collected by Don Cesário Duro. The hesitating character of the king, and his many embarrassments, political and financial, caused many delays, and left Santa Cruz unable to act with effect. He was at Lisbon without the means of fitting out his fleet, when Francis Drake burnt the Spanish ships at Cádiz during his 1587 expedition. The independence of judgment shown by Santa Cruz ended by offending the king, and he was held responsible for the failures and delays which were the result of the bad management of his master. His death, which occurred on February 9, 1588 at Lisbon, was said to have been hastened by the unjustified reproaches of the king.

Sylum Inspiration: Calleigh Duquesne

Integridad/Sylum: Hunter

 

Calleigh Duquesne was born in South Carolina and was raised in a good Southern family, or so her momma made everyone believe. Her father was a drunk, and an asshole, which finally came to an end when he was killed in a car accident when she was sixteen.

After graduating High School she went to Charleston University, graduated with a degree in Physics. She started working in Charleston PD, earning the name Bullet Girl from her expertise in firearms.

She was recruited by Horatio Caine for the Miami-Dade Forensics Lab. She was the new girl along with Eric Delko, who had also been recruited into the lab after Megan Donner left. She wasn’t sure how to handle the one veteran, Timothy Speedle.

Overtime the team solidified nicely together and she felt as if she found a family. It all came crashing down when Speed was shot and killed in the line of duty. Only to find out that he was a Vampire.

Soon she found herself in a Clan War and dealing with all types of Vampires.  It was the first time she met Diego.

Later she was told that she was his Mate. Only to discover that he was drastically injured and had gone home to Spain to recuperate.

Calleigh stayed in Miami, even after Horatio and Speed moved to New Orleans. She worked with Mac and Danny, and then soon became friends with Michael, Sam and Fi. It was finally after she learned all that happened in Rome, that she took a Spaniard by the horns and gave him one option take what was his or don’t.

He wasn’t that stupid.

Most of Harry’s life has sucked. He was always told he kinda looked like Stark, but more messy and pathetic.

When trying to escape a burglary gone wrong he ended up in a casting session, winning over the producers who wanted to screen test him for a role.

At a Hollywood party he met Perry.

The rest of the story is a sad Hollywood plot that even he couldn’t get his head around. By the end of it, he discovered the role went to Kirk Lazarus. The bastard.

Perry showed up, kidnapped him, and took him to Spain to explain about past lives and Vampires. Harry wished he had told him before he lost his fingers! He agreed to be Turned and the two Mated soon after.

Sylum Inspiration: Urraca of Leon

clara-sanchis_161

Integridad: Council Member

 

Urraca was the eldest surviving child of Alfonso VI of León with his second wife Constance of Burgundy, and as eldest legitimate child of her father was heiress presumptive from her birth until 1107, when Alfonso recognized his illegitimate son Sancho as his heir. Urraca became heiress presumptive again after Sancho’s death the following year, when he was killed after the Battle of Uclés.

Urraca’s place in the line of succession made her the focus of dynastic politics, and she became a child bride at age eight to Raymond of Burgundy, a mercenary adventurer. Author Bernard F. Reilly suggests that, rather than a betrothal, the eight-year-old Urraca was fully wedded to Raymond of Burgundy, as he almost immediately appears in protocol documents as Alfonso VI’s son-in-law, a distinction that would not have been made without the marriage. Reilly doubts that the marriage was consummated until Urraca was 13, as she was placed under the protective guardianship of a trusted magnate. Her pregnancy and stillbirth at age 14 suggest that the marriage was indeed consummated when she was 13 or 14 years old.

Urraca’s marriage to Raymond was part of Alfonso VI’s diplomatic strategy to attract cross-Pyrenees alliances, and in 1105 she gave birth to a son, who would become Alfonso VII. However, after Raymond died in 1107, Urraca’s father contracted with Alfonso I of Aragon, known as the Battler, for a dynastic marriage with Urraca, opening the opportunity for uniting León-Castile with Aragon.

The marriage of Urraca and Alfonso I almost immediately sparked rebellions in Galicia and scheming by her illegitimate half-sister Theresa and brother-in-law Henry, the Countess and Count of Portugal.

As their relationship soured, Urraca accused Alfonso of physical abuse, and by May 1110 Urraca separated from Alfonso. In addition to her objections to Alfonso’s handling of rebels, the couple had a falling-out over his execution of one of the rebels who had surrendered to the queen, to whom the queen was inclined to be merciful. Additionally, as Urraca was married to someone many in the kingdom objected to, the queen’s son and heir became a rallying point for opponents to the marriage.

Estrangement between husband and wife escalated from discrete and simmering hostilities into open armed warfare between the Leonese-Castilians and the Aragonese. An alliance between Alfonso of Aragon and Henry of Portugal culminated in the 1111 Battle of Candespina in which Urraca’s lover and chief supporter Gómez González was killed. He was soon replaced in both roles by another count, Pedro González de Lara, who took up the fight and would father two of Urraca’s children. By the fall of 1112 a truce was brokered between Urraca and Alfonso with their marriage annulled. Though Urraca recovered Asturias, Leon, and Galicia, Alfonso occupied a significant portion of Castile (where Urraca enjoyed large support), while her half-sister Theresa and her husband Count Henry of Portugal occupied Zamora and Extremadura. Recovering these regions and expanding into Muslim lands would occupy much of Urraca’s foreign policy.

According to author Bernard F. Reilly, the measure of success for Urraca’s rule was her ability to restore and protect the integrity of her inheritance – that is, the kingdom of her father – and transmit that inheritance in full to her own heir. Policies and events pursued by Alfonso VI – namely legitimizing her brother and thereby providing an opportunity for her illegitimate half-sister to claim a portion of the patrimony, as well as the forced marriage with Alfonso I of Aragon – contributed in large part to the challenges Urraca faced upon her succession. Additionally, the circumstance of Urraca’s gender added a distinctive role-reversal dimension to diplomacy and politics, which Urraca used to her advantage.

Sylum Inspiration: Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (El Cid)

sGIdMVbh_400x400 (1)

Integridad: Second-in-Command

 

As we have moved to May’s Calendar highlight Integridad Kin Clan – we will be introducing a few of the new characters that were added to the Clan.

El Cid – also known as Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar was born circa 1043 AD in Vivar, also known as Castillona de Bivar, a small town about six miles north of Burgos, the capital of Castile. His father, Diego Laínez, was a courtier, bureaucrat, and cavalryman who had fought in several battles. Despite the fact that El Cid’s mother’s family was aristocratic, in later years the peasants would consider him one of their own. However, his relatives were not major court officials; documents show that El Cid’s paternal grandfather, Lain, confirmed only five documents of Ferdinand I’s, his maternal grandfather, Rodrigo Alvarez, certified only two of Sancho II’s, and El Cid’s own father confirmed only one.

As a young man in 1057, Rodrigo fought against the Moorish stronghold of Zaragoza, making its emir al-Muqtadir a vassal of Sancho. In the spring of 1063, Rodrigo fought in the Battle of Graus, where Ferdinand’s half-brother, Ramiro I of Aragon, was laying siege to the Moorish town of Cinca which was in Zaragozan lands. Al-Muqtadir, accompanied by Castilian troops including El Cid, fought against the Aragonese. The party would emerge victorious; Ramiro I was killed and the Aragonese fled the field. One legend has said that during the conflict, El Cid killed an Aragonese knight in single combat, thereby receiving the honorific title Campeador.

When Ferdinand died, Sancho continued to enlarge his territory, conquering both Christian and the Moorish cities of Zamora and Badajoz. When Sancho learned that Alfonso was planning on overthrowing him in order to gain his territory, Sancho sent Cid to bring Alfonso back so that Sancho could speak to him.

Sancho was assassinated in 1072, as the result of a pact between his brother Alfonso and his sister Urraca. Since Sancho died unmarried and childless, all of his power passed to his brother Alfonso.

Almost immediately, Alfonso returned from exile in Toledo and took his seat as king of Castile and León. He was deeply suspected in Castile, probably correctly, of having been involved in Sancho’s murder. According to the epic of El Cid, the Castilian nobility led by El Cid and a dozen “oath-helpers” forced Alfonso to swear publicly in front of Santa Gadea (Saint Agatha) Church in Burgos on holy relics multiple times that he did not participate in the plot to kill his brother. This is widely reported as truth, but contemporary documents on the lives of both Rodrigo Diaz and Alfonso VI of Castile and León do not mention any such event. Rodrigo’s position as armiger regis was taken away and given to Rodrigo’s enemy, Count García Ordóñez.

In 1079 Rodrigo was sent by Alfonso VI to Seville to the court of al-Mutamid to collect the parias owed by that taifa to León–Castile. While he was there Granada, assisted by other Castilean knights, attacked Seville, and Rodrigo and his forces repulsed the Christian and Grenadine attackers at the Battle of Cabra, in the (probably mistaken) belief that he was defending the king’s tributary. The Count García Ordóñez and the other Castilian leaders were taken captive and held for three days before being released.

While in Exile, and his ability to combine the Muslim and Christians together in one army, he caught the attention of Azeem. The Vampire traveled to see him and talk to him about a new opportunity.

El Cid took it without hesitation.
