Here is told the life of Catalina de Erauso, the ensign nun, who after leaving the convent of San Sebastian, dressed as a man and went to America, where she reached the rank of ensign. Catherine killed many men in duels and brawls, including a brother of hers, and had several love affairs with other women.
She was arrested in Peru and sentenced to death after another of her usual brawls. Then it was known that she was a virgin and the bishop of the region forgave her. On her return to Spain, King Philip IV received her, respected her military rank and authorized l@ to use a male name. The Pope also allowed him to dress as a man.
After these adventures he returned to America, this time to Mexico, opened a business and lived as a man until his death.
The original version of The Story of the Nun Ensign is the work of Catherine herself and she published it in the form of a memoir. This book (also published by Linkgua Ediciones) is the source, among other texts, of the plays on the subject of Juan Antonio Mateos and Juan Pérez de Montalbán.
