Tintomara is then taken under the protection of a Baroness, who hides her on her country estate, where Tintomara passes as a boy.
In the country, she becomes the love object of two women, Amanda and Adolfine, the daughters of the Baroness; and two men, the nobles Ferdinand and Clas-Henrik, who earlier courted the sisters and who are now concealing their involvement in the assassination.
Tintomara is killed by Ferdinand during a performance planned as a spectacular entertainment for the court which ends in disaster. The novel’s most famous line is spoken by Tintomara’s dying mother, Clara: Tintomara is said to have been inspired by the daughter of Giovanna BassiJohanna Fredrikawho was presumed to be fathered by Count Adolf Fredrik Munck af Fulkila.
By persistent rumors, the count was said to be the true father of Gustav IV Adolf of Sweden ; Bassi’s daughter was said to have a strong resemblance to the King, who might have been her half-brother.
Another role model and source of inspiration was reportedly the contemporary transsexual Andreas Bruce. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: Articles containing Swedish-language text.
