I copy with slight changes the history depicted in the drama
Mariana Pineda was a local heroine in Lorca's home town (Granada). She was executed in 1831, at the age of 27, for having had a flag embroidered with the words "Liberty, Equality and Law". She helped her cousin, Pedro Sotomayor, a "conspirador" against Ferdinand VII's repressive regime, to escape from prision. Mariana could have saved her own life by betraying Sotomayor and his political allies. She refused. In Lorca's play, her motives are presented as non-political. She is moved only by the power of her love for her cousin, who proves to be unworthy of her (another familiar Lorca theme).
