Der bestrafte Brudermord (Fratricide Punished)

Unhappy Prince, how long must thou live without rest! How long a time, O just Nemesis, dost thou appoint for whetting thy just sword of vengeance6 against my uncle, the fratricide! Now am I back here once more, and cannot yet attain to my revenge, because this fratricide is at all times surrounded by many people.7 But I swear, that ere the sun has finished his journey from east to west, I will avenge myself on him.
