(2) Even though the prince married the Castilian Infanta in 1340, Pedro was madly in love with Inês. Despite Constança's efforts, as well as the King's later attempts to separate the lovers (by banishing Inês from Court and sending her back to Castile in 1344), the feelings of the couple for each other did not subside. After Constança's death Dom Pedro went after Inês, brought her back to Portugal and settled her in Coimbra, where they would live together openly. They had four children.

(4) The news of Inês' death drove Pedro into a fury. As soon as he was crowned in 1357, King Dom Pedro I recovered two of Inês' assassins and he had them tortured and executed: from one of the men the heart was ripped out of the body through his back, and from the other, the heart was pulled out through the chest. Peter later had Inês' body exhumed and placed upon a throne, dressed in rich robes and jewels, requiring all of his vassals to kiss the hand of the deceased "queen".
