(24) It had long been contended that the character of the chaste Sofronia, a figure with no historical precedent who is prepared to sacrifice herself in order to save the other Christian inhabitants of pagan-controlled Jerusalem in canto 2, was intended as a thinly veiled portrait of the Princess Leonora, and so it did not require a great stretch of the imagination to suppose that the lovesick Olindo represented the poet himself.
