✜ ”One hundred maidens”
👆🏻The master's hand 👆🏻
Four kings of the Asturian-Leonese monarchy (Aurelio, Silo, Mauregato and Bermudo I, who reigned from 762 to 791) received the nickname of "Reyes Holgazanes" due to they didn’t too much in favor of the Reconquest of the Iberian peninsula; it is true that they coincided with the reign of Abderramán I that personifies the unity of the Arab forces.

Popular tradition has hung these kings the legend of the TRIBUTE OF THE “CIEN DONCELLAS” (100 virgins), a pact that was supposedly made by one of these princes, perhaps Mauregato, with the sovereign of Cordoba, by which they promised to deliver one hundred maidens annually for the harem of the caliphs.

This popular tradition, well interpreted by critics, indicates that there were peace treaties between Christian kings and caliphs, and that they asked for Christian women who voluntarily wanted to marry with Muslim men.

Other interpretation says that, being very few the number of women in relation to the number of men in Arab territory, perhaps the Caliphs asked Asturian-Leonese kings, with whom maintained relations of peace and friendship, for send them as a great favor and not as slaves, as many women as wished to take Muslim husbands.

In any case, the legend of the one hundred virgins was used to heat up the spirit of the Reconquest among Christians.
The Courtyard of the Maidens gets its name from this legend!!

Beautiful Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta. Even though the garden is small, it’s extremely gorgeous and offers spectacular views of the Grand Harbour. Get there when they fire the saluting battery or just like we did - for the sunset.

Life seems a lot better when the sun shines two days in a row

🇩🇰The very impressive Frederik’s Church, aka The Marble Church, as seen from the Royal Fountain near Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen. Although the foundation stone was laid by King Frederik V in 1749, construction proceeded at a snail’s pace due to funding and other issues, and the church wasn’t finally finished until 1894. Guess it was worth the wait. Today Frederik’s Church is the most popular place in the city to be married.
