登录VALIANT平台ta平台登录登录Chynon, by falling in Love, became wise, and by force of Armes,winning his faire Lady Iphigenia on the Seas, was afterward imprisonedat Rhodes. Being delivered by anyone named Lysimachus, with him herecovered his Iphigenia againe, and faire Cassandra, even in themiddest of their marriage. They fled with them into Candye, whereafter they had married them, they were called home to their ownedwelling.平台登录According to the ancient Annales of the Cypriots, there sometimelived in Cyprus, a Noble Gentleman, who was commonly calledAristippus, and exceeded all other of the Country in the goods ofFortune. Divers children he had, but (amongst the rest) a Sonne, inwhose birth he was more infortunate then any of the rest; andcontinually greeved, in regard, that having all the compleateperfections of beauty, good forme, and manly parts, surpassing allother youths of his age or stature, yet hee wanted the reallornament of the soule, reason and judgement; being (indeed a meereIdeot or Foole,) and no better hope to be expected of him. His truename, according as he received it by Baptisme, was Galesus, butbecause neyther by the laborious paines of his Tutors indulgence,and faire endevour of his parents, or ingenuity of any other, he couldnot be brought to civility of life, understanding of Letters, orcommon carriage of a reasonable creature: by his grosse and deformedkinde of speech, his qualities also savouring rather of brutishbreeding, then any way derived from manly education; as an Epithite ofscorne and derision, generally, they gave him the name of Chynon,which in their native Countrey language, and divers other beside,signifieth a very Sot or Foole, and so was he termed by every one.
平台登录This lost kinde of life in him, was no meane burthen of greefeunto his Noble Father, and all hope being already spent, of any futurehappy recovery, he gave command (because he would not alwaies havesuch a sorrow in his sight) that he should live at a Farme of his ownein a Country Village, among his Peazants and Plough-Swaines. Which wasnot any way distastefull to Chynon, but well agreed with his ownenaturall disposition; for their rurall qualities, and grosse behaviourpleased him beyond the Cities civility. Chynon living thus at hisFathers Countrey Village, exercising nothing else but ruralldemeanour, such as then delighted him above all other: it chanced upona day about the houre of noone, as hee was walking over the fields,with a long staffe on his necke, which commonly he used to carry; heentred in to a small thicket, reputed the goodliest in all thosequarters, and by reason it was then the month of May, the Trees hadtheir leaves fairely shot forth.平台When notice heereof was given to the Potestate, he arose; and sheebeing brought foorth into the Hall before him, he questioned with her,how and by what meanes this accident happened. Beside, he sent fordivers Physitians, to be informed by them, whether the Gentlemanwere poysoned, or otherwise murthered? All of them affirmed thecontrarie, avouching rather, that some Impostumation had engenderedneere his heart, which sodainly breaking, occasioned his as sodainedeath. The Potestate hearing this, and perceiving that Andreana waslittle or nothing at all faulty in the matter, her beauty and goodcarriage, kindled a vitlanous and lustful desire in him towards her,provoking him to the immodest motion, that upon granting hisrequest, he would release her. But when he saw, that all hisperswasions were to no purpose, hee sought to compasse his will byviolence; which like a vertuous and valiant Virago, shee worthilywithstood, defending her honour Nobly, and reprooving him with manyinjurious speeches, such as a lustfull Letcher Justlie deserved.详情
