Her grief plunges the ancient queen into a deep depression which results in suicide. Her compassion for those she left behind, including her former lover, is compelling, Her final words speak volumes about her character: She pleads, "When I am laid...in earth, may my wrongs create...no trouble...in thy breast....Remember me, but ah! Forget my fate."
