Arodaphnousa

  1. 1. ARODAPHNOUSA GIRL OF ARODAPHNES
  2. 2. Arodaphne= a traditional Cypriot Flower known for its beauty and bitterness
  3. 3. A long time ago, in a small village near Paphos,lived 3 beautiful sisters.Their parents were happy because they had such beautiful and good girls.But the third daughter,was twice as good and beautiful as the others.Her name was Arodaphnousa.
  4. 4. Once,young Arodaphnousa saw the young King as he was passing by.He was riding his horse.He was handsome with long blond hair.When he saw her he became speechless.It was love at first sight.Some months passed and King asked her to live in the palace as the Queen’s helper.She was more than happy beacause she would get closer to the King.
  5. 5. At first all were going well,until King’s wife(the queen) found out about their secret love.Right at that time the King left the palace for a long and difficult journey.The Queen,tortured and hit Arodafnousa and made her life a living hell.Arodaphnousa,stood strong because of her love for the King.The queen,locked her in a small church far away...
  6. 6. Some years passed,the King returned from his journey,and he randomly found his love,Arodafnousa in a really bad situation.She was barely alive.He stayed with her untill her last breath...Arodafnousa,said:Our love was bitter,like Arodafne ...Then she died.
