SCENE VII

The Royal Palace, Stockholm. The King’s bedchamber.38

DUKE CARL. More than sixty persons.

THE KING. Alas that the forms of law should require such zeal. More than my torments, the thought pains me of the punishment awaiting the criminal. Come closer to my bed and hear my wishes: no one is to suffer for my sake, no one.

DUKE CARL. Your Majesty, the law demands blood for blood.

THE KING. I want no enemies to keep me company on so long and perilous a journey. I’m a human being, brother; and surely I, as the injured party, can forgive a crime against myself.

DUKE CARL. The populace are crying out.

THE KING. Very well then, Duke Carl of Södermanland! To my last moment I am King – as King I have the right to pardon, a right of which no one in Sweden can deprive me – I pardon them all.

DUKE CARL. Sublime and kingly indulgence!

THE KING. And if the law craves blood for blood, then may he alone, the unhappy one, die – none other. On your princely honour, Carl, this is my last word! Give me your hand on it.
