Ciana de’Libri is the youngest daughter of a Florentine Merchant. As such she has been quite indulged and allowed to ride and hunt, and read and have tutors as well as learning the more gentle arts of sewing and embroidery. When it became apparent that this indulgence had made her quite stubborn especially on the subject of marriage her parents sent her away to Spanish relatives where she promptly met, fell in love with and ran away with her now husband, Kian, an Irish mercenary who had been employed in Spain.
