"Amor, honor y poder" is a comedy first published in Madrid in 1623. The narrative centers around King Edward III of England's sister Flérida La Infanta, who nearly dies after her runaway horse throws her out of the saddle. However, she's rescued by Enrico, the Count of Salverie's son. The young man takes her to the castle, and the King thanks him for saving his sister. He is eventually acquainted with Estela, Enrico's sister, for whom he develops an attraction. This classical text is known as one of Pedro Calderón de la Barca's best works.
