The plot of the opera Beatrice di Tenda is based on historical events, just like Donizetti’s opera Anna Bolena. In both operas, an innocent woman is sentenced to death by her husband, a tyrant, and villain.
It is historically documented that Countess Beatrice di Tenda lived from 1372 to 1418 and was married to Facino Cane in her first marriage. In 1412, after her husband’s death, Beatrice married the Duke of Milan, Filippo Maria Visconti, who was then 20 years old. Beatrice brought large estates into the marriage. Filippo Maria began to hate his wife and fell in love with his wife’s maid of honor, Agnese de Maino, who became his mistress.
In 1418 Visconti innocently accused his wife, Beatrice of adultery, with Michele Orombelli and had her executed at Binasco Castle near Milan.
