Who was Anais? The mere mention of the name “Anais” reminds fragrances and inebriating scents of Orient, gold pendants, silver grains and purple ribbons, exotic essences of myrrh and incense, cedar fruits and mandrake plants. That is what young Frederick II might have thought the very first moment he met his new wife’s cousin. Indeed, Frederick II married Yolanda of Brienne, queen of Jerusalem, in November 1225 mainly for a diplomatic purpose. The emperor was fascinated by the ladies of queen’s retinue, in particular by her cousin Anais because of her deep black eyes and her Odalisque body which recalled memories of distant lands such as Syria, Lebanon and Cyprus Island. Yolanda was still a too young and immature woman, so Frederick decided to spend the first night of his marriage together with Anais and he started with her a relationship of pleasure and voluptuousness. However, Anais was too strong-willed and indomitable to accept to be a pure exotic object of pleasure destined to live a life as a concubine. Fredrick considered Anais his beautiful and elusive “flower of Syria” and when she fled and abandoned the Emperor, he wrote a moving farewell lamentation in the vain wait for his beloved Anais’s return.
