Persona

Robbed at a tender age of that which is most valuable to a woman of virtue, and being further wronged by a father who drank away much her dowry, Valeria found herself unable to marry a man appropriate to her family's station. Her mother had died young, and her step mother was formal and distant. (Perhaps because she was constantly squeezing her father for each penny the household needed to survive.) At seventeen, she eloped secretly with a young soldier, Niccolo. Their love was true and sweet, but woefully short. He went aboard a ship to help the Venetians defend Cypress, and died in the fray. Valeria was a widow not yet twenty, but with the benefit of his commission money.

Having some funds now to secure herself, but uninterested in marrying again for love of her Niccolo, she left her family's home attempting to find some way to make a place for herself. Her brother, an educated man, who frequently attended the humanist salons of the era to discuss the new philosophy, had taught her to read. And so, armed with, if not a great world of knowledge, more ability than most women of her age and birth, she went to court. There the women were gossiping to one side, while the men played at the chess and gambled boldly at card games. Valeria, with the kind of confidence born of a desperate gamble, sat down in an empty chair at the men's card game, and placed an ante, to much shock and whispering among the ladies. And also to the smiling amusement of one senior cortigiana. So it was that Valeria received a mentor and began to learn a trade that would judge her for a different set of virtues.
