Geocache Description:


Lenda dos Sete Ais

Destacado para ocupar o castelo de Sintra, D. Mendo de Paiva encontrou a princesa moura Anasir, que fugia com a sua aia, Zuleima.

A princesa, assustada, mandou um grito. Não obstante, D. Mendo mostrou intenção de não a deixar escapar, ao que a princesa mandou outro grito.

Sem lhe dar explicações, Zuleima pediu a Anasir para nunca mais soltar nenhum grito do género. Contudo, ao ver aproximar-se o exército cristão, a jovem soltou mais um.

D. Mendo decidiu escondê-las numa casa que tinha na região. Querendo levar Anasir no seu cavalo, ameaçou-a de a separar da sua aia se ela não acedesse. Em resposta, Anasir deixou escapar o quarto "Ai!".

Algum tempo depois de se instalar na casa, a princesa moura apaixonou-se por D. Mendo de Paiva. Um dia, a casa começou a ser rondada por mouros e Zuleima logo receou que fosse o antigo noivo de Anasir, Aben-Abed, que voltara para castigar a sua traição.

Zuleima confidenciou a D. Mendo que uma feiticeira lhe tinha dito que a princesa morreria ao pronunciar o sétimo "Ai!". Entretanto, Anasir, curiosa pela preocupação da aia em relação aos seus "Ais", exprimiu o quinto e o sexto consecutivamente.

Não muito depois, sete dias após a partida de D. Mendo para uma batalha, Aben-Abed surpreendeu Anasir. Ela soltou o sétimo "Ai!", ao mesmo tempo que o punhal do mouro a feria no peito.

Tomando conhecimento do sucedido e enlouquecido pela dor, D. Mendo de Paiva tornou-se no mais feroz caçador de mouros do seu tempo.

 

Legend of the Sete Ais

Detached to occupy the castle of Sintra, D. Mendo de Paiva encountered the Moorish princess Anasir, who was fleeing with her maid, Zuleima.

The princess, frightened, screamed. However, D. Mendo showed his intention not to let her escape, to which the princess sent another scream.

Without giving him any explanation, Zuleima asked Anasir never to let out any screams like that again. However, upon seeing the Christian army approaching, the young woman released one more.

D. Mendo decided to hide them in a house he had in the region. Wanting to take Anasir on his horse, he threatened to separate her from her maid if she did not comply. In response, Anasir blurted out the fourth "Ai!"

Some time after settling in the house, the Moorish princess fell in love with D. Mendo de Paiva. One day, the house began to be surrounded by Moors and Zuleima soon feared that it was Anasir's former fiancé, Aben-Abed, who had returned to punish her for her betrayal.

Zuleima confided in D. Mendo that a sorceress had told her that the princess would die when she pronounced the seventh "Ai!". However, Anasir, curious about the maid's concern regarding her "Ais", expressed the fifth and sixth consecutively.

Not long after, seven days after D. Mendo's departure for battle, Aben-Abed surprised Anasir. She let out the seventh "Ai!", at the same time as the Moor's dagger stabbed her in the chest.

Learning of what had happened and driven mad by grief, D. Mendo de Paiva became the most ferocious Moorish hunter of his time.
