I wasn't always an ugly old woman. I was the beautiful daughter of Pope Urban X and the Princess of Palestrina. When I was on my ship about to get married our ship got kidnapped and I suffered horrible things like getting rapped, becoming a slave, and having my buttcheek cutoff because we needed food.

I can't believe she had a worse life than me.
Why do bad things always happen to good people?
