A local legend tells that there was once a bad-tempered King whose wife had died and had been left to bring up his daughter named Antilia alone. The King had greatly loved her mother and he doted upon his daughter. When his wife had died he had almost exclusively taken on the care and upbringing of his daughter aided only by an elderly nurse. He loved his daughter dearly and she was the source of all his pleasure and the pride and joy of his life and he wanted to keep her all for himself and kept her separate from other children and people. Sadly, he would not let her speak or play with anyone else but him, or her nurse, who thought it a shame she could not mix and play with other children her own age.
Nevertheless, years passed by as years will do and the young princess grew into a beautiful young woman. As a beautiful young woman, Antilia attracted the attention of many handsome young men, as beautiful young women will do. Her father was jealous of their interest towards his daughter and seeking to keep her solely for himself banned her entirely from leaving the limits of his castle and grounds. Antilia was disappointed with this ban because she was at an age when she wanted to be out and about exploring the world and making friends with young men and women of her own age.
Every day after his dinner at midday the King would fall asleep and spend rest of the afternoon snoring until evening came and it was time for tea. Every now and then, with the help of her old nurse, Antilia would escape the confines of the castle and its grounds and go and explore the towns and villages that surrounded the castle. She loved these times of escape and each one seemed like an exciting adventure to her.
