Victorian gold-filled brooch. This beautiful Victorian brooch features a hand-painted portrait of Beatrice Cenci, the young Roman noblewoman whose tragic fate sparked public sympathy and inspired literary works for centuries to come. This gold-filled Victorian brooch, measuring 2 inches wide by 2.5 inches long, serves as a poignant tribute to her enduring legacy. Born on February 6, 1577, in Rome, Beatrice was the daughter of Francesco Cenci, a notorious and powerful nobleman known for his cruelty. Imprisoned alongside her mother Lucrezia in the desolate castle of La Petrella, Beatrice endured years of abuse at her father's hands. Seeking freedom, she conspired to kill her father with her brother Giacomo and others, leading to their execution by Pope Clement VIII in 1599. This brooch captures the essence of Beatrice's resilience, portraying her haunting beauty amidst the turmoil of her life.
