amaranthinelover:

But even if I must face the fact that I may never see you again, I am equally sure that I will always love you, and you are cruel if you doubt this fact. You should not doubt a friendship which has persisted through an absence of three years; and if you remember the power you have over me, you will also remember that I have been in the possession of your love for twelve years; I belong to you so utterly, that it will never be possible for you to lose me: and only when I die, shall I cease loving you.

Queen Christina of Sweden to Ebba “Belle” Sparre
