    The poem Carmen de gestis Frederici I imperatoris in Lombardia, written about 1162, describes Beatrice upon her wedding day:

    "Venus did not have this virgin's beauty,
    Minerva did not have her brilliant mind
    And Juno did not have her wealth.
    There never was another except God's mother Mary
    And Beatrice is so happy she excels her."
