Here is told The Story of the Ensign Nun. Catherine of Erauso, daughter of Captain Miguel de Erauso, was the youngest of six children. At the age of four she was interned with her three sisters in the convent of the Dominicans of San Sebastián el Antiguo. Misfit and rebellious, she was transferred to the convent of San Bartolomé, with stricter rules and closure.
Oppressed and humiliated by one of the nuns, Catherine fled the monastery at the age of fifteen without having professed. After leaving the convent, he dressed as a man and went to America, where he reached the rank of ensign.
He killed many men in duels and brawls, including a brother, 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 she was received by King Philip IV, who respected her military rank and authorized her 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.
There are numerous versions of this autobiography including those of Juan Pérez de Montalbán and Juan Antonio Mateos, both published in Linkgua. The Story of the Ensign Nun is a reference text in feminist studies and on the historical condition of women.
