The Forbidden One

She has been reputed as dangerous since the earliest times. The man who first dared to touch her was severely punished, even though it is undeniable that he had been seduced by her.

At an unfair trial she was charged with poisoning a white little princess and with arousing disagreement among the beautiful Greek goddesses. She was condemned to die of an arrow blow and executed by a skillful crossbow shooter in a Swiss canton. A toast was organized in the village to celebrate her execution. Her cold body was served in a golden jug, tasting to cider.
