The Huesca Bell by José Casado del Alisal, 1879

José Casado del Alisal

Apologies for this gruesome image but it is an amazing piece of work. Follow the link to read the legend it’s illustrating.

“The Bell of Huesca is a legend describing how Ramiro II of Aragon, the Monk, cut off the heads of twelve nobles who did not obey him. The legend is told in the 13th-century anonymous Aragonese work the Cantar de la campana de Huesca.”
