The Loss of Spain to a Woman (La pérdida de España por una mujer) was written by Eusebio Vela in Mexico in 1733, and tells the legend of Florinda la Cava, King Rodrigo and the Muslim invasion of Spain.
Don Rodrigo, the last Gothic king, refuses to fulfill his promises of marriage to Florinda, daughter of Count Julian, for which the latter, in revenge, hands the country over to the Arabs.
The outraged honor of the count and his daughter is the motive that triggers the tragedy. Although Vela tries to refer it, ultimately, to the divine decision to punish the sins of Don Rodrigo. In the end, after the defeat of the Christians, Florinda announces her decision to retire to a desert, repentant for having acted “against heaven, law and country”, which shows that not even the vengeance of honor justifies behavior like hers.

Day one

(Hall with throne. Boxes and bugles are played, and the king is uncovered on his throne; on the sides the count, Don Pelayo, Don Sancho and Don Opas).

Voices: King Don Rodrigo, long live,
our rightful owner!

Julian: Since at your royal command
all the greats of the kingdom,
leaving our states,
we have come to Toledo,
court of Spain,
for having been the seat
of the Gothic kings,
who is your ancestor trunk, 10
from the Baltos
that have always governed Goths:
to your royal plants
you have, sir, the first
to Count Julián.

Pelayo: And if I can deserve
be the second, in such a
I get what I want,
for without a second to serve you
I am, when the second one arrived. 20

King: Cousin Pelayo, into my arms
