In The Affront Is Also Poison (También la afrenta es veneno) Luis Vélez tells once again the story of Inés de Castro, natural daughter of Pedro Fernández de Castro and Aldonza Soares de Valladares; with a certain kinship with the Castilian royal family.
When her mother died as a child, Inés was taken to Valladolid, to the castle of Peñafiel. There he grew up in the company of Constanza Manuel, the daughter of the infante don Juan Manuel. In 1341, Constanza married Pedro I of Portugal, known as the Justiciero, and soon after he became the lover of Inés de Castro.
The relationship endangered the crown of Alfonso IV as the sons and brothers of Inés had ambitions of power. Thus, with the approval of the court, Alfonso ordered that Inés be executed.
After the assassination, Pedro led an uprising that plunged Portugal into a long civil war that only ended shortly before he obtained the crown, after the death of Alfonso IV in 1357. Then Peter made their marriage public and Agnes was unearthed and received the royal crown, in 1360 amid general veneration.
The theme of También la afrenta es veneno appears in Reinar después de morir, also by Vélez de Guevara, among other works of the time.
