Maria Pita by GENZOMAN Maria Pita by GENZOMAN
Hi there! well, another OOOOOOLD draw (of the firts quarter of 2007 if I remember well) for the pirate edition of Myths & Legends CCG.... ok:D her story:

María Mayor Fernández de Cámara y Pita (Sigrás, 1565 – 1643), also knowed as Maria Pita was a hero in the defense of La Coruña. This place was under the attack of famous Sir Francis Drake and the english army.

In May 4 of 1589, english troops surrounded the city, they opening a great space on the city´s walls, starting the assault. The Assault was leading for a lieutenant, he going do por un alférez que,directed by a subaltern that, with the Ressitance Flag in hand, he managed to raise the highest part of the wall. Maria killed the English lieutenant, with the sword of his beloved husband, killed by the english in the same assault.

One says that this fact was carried out to the shout of ""Who has honour, follow me!"," , which demoralized the English troops and brought about its retirement... For Sir francis Drake, this was one of the few times of shame.

Maria killed the english lieutenant, with the sword of his beloved husband? I thought Sir Francis Drake married Mary Newman?

It's funny how Sir Fracis Drake also attacked in the island where I live and he failed miserably in conquering. XD
