The Constant Prince (El Príncipe Constante) is a play written by Pedro Calderón de la Barca between late 1628 and early 1629.
Calderón staged the Portuguese attack against Tangier in 1437. The expedition was led by Henry the Navigator and especially by his brother, Infante Ferdinand, Master of the Order of Avis.
After the failure of the offensive, the infant is taken captive by the king of Fez. The king proposes to release him on condition that he hand over the city of Ceuta, a Christian city that the monarch covets. The infant Ferdinand tenaciously rejected this barter, suffering from then until his death a slavery that resembles a martyrdom.
The play is a historical drama or Christian tragedy about human free will, torn between ethical requirements and the doctrine of salvation. The main character consciously condemns himself to slavery, deprivation of privileges and finally death, in the name of the Christian faith.
The Constant Prince is one of the most paradigmatic works of the theater of Calderón de la Barca. A clear reference of the complex ideological world of the playwright.
This is one of the great masterpieces of Calderón de la Barca. A work that has collected great praise from various European theater traditions such as German, Polish or Russian. A work that led Goethe to say in 1804, in a letter to Schiller,

“that if all the poetry in the world disappeared, it would be possible to reconstruct it on the basis of The Constant Prince.”
