Story about Princess Simonida-
After signing peace with Serbian king Milutin in 1299, Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II gave him his 5-year old daughter Simonida. She was to be a guarantee of eternal peace and friendship between two countries. According to some Byzantine sources Milutin did not wait until Simonida reached maturity before consummating their relationship, causing damage to her uterus and preventing her from ever carrying children. Her beauty was well known, and a fresco of her in Gračanica monastery is one of the most valuable frescos in Serbian art. Unfortunately, the fresco is partly ruined, so that Simonida had no eyes. Simonida died in 1340 as a nun. In Serbian traditions, she was known as figure of purity and beauty.
Milan Rakić wrote a lyric poem about Serbian Princess Simonida Nemanjic(Nemanyeech), and Milutin Bojić wrote a psychological drama called Kraljeva Jesen (Eng. King's autumn) about her.
