La Princesa de Éboli


Ana de Mendoza de la Cerda, princesa de Éboli
Fue una de las mujeres de más talento de su época, y aunque perdió un ojo a causa de un
entrenamiento de esgrima, se la estimaba como una de las damas más hermosas de la corte española.
Entre las teorías que se barajan sobre la pérdida de su ojo derecho, la más respaldada es la que
asegura que la princesa fue dañada por la punta de un florete manejado por un paje durante su
infancia. Pero este dato no es claro, quizá no fuese tuerta sino bizca, aunque hay pocos datos
que mencionen dicho defecto físico. En cualquier caso, su defecto no restaba belleza a su rostro;
su carácter altivo y su amor por el lujo se convirtieron en su mejor etiqueta de presentación,
y ejerció una gran influencia en la corte.

It was one of the most talented women of her time, and even lost an eye because of an
fencing training, it is believed as one of the most beautiful ladies of the Spanish court.
Among the theories being considered on the loss of his right eye, the best supported is that
ensures that the princess was damaged by the tip of a foil driven by a page during
childhood. However this is not clear, but might not be one-eyed squint, although there are few data
to mention the physical defect. In any case, their absence does not detract from the beauty of his face;
lofty character and love of luxury became his best submission label,
and exerted a strong influence on the court....
