Tatwine Riddle 25: De superbia


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Eximio quondam sedis sum nata parente,
Quem diris, vinctum, dampnis regna spoliavi.
Septenas pariter mihi deservire parabam
Reginas, comitum septas cum prole maligna.
Parvus ast, obiens me, iam prostraverat armis.


Once I was born from a remarkable parent in his habitat,
Whom, bound, I despoiled of his kingdoms with fearful damages.
Likewise, I was preparing to devote myself to seven
Queens, surrounded with the evil offspring of their companions.
But a little one, meeting me, now overthrew me with weapons.
