The reader of Spanish history, familiar with the contentions which raged among the petty kingdoms of Spain, during the tenth century, will not be at a loss to understand the painting, "The Cid and his Sons." Roderigo, the Cid, was one of the most distinguished and valiant Knights Errant of his time, and the artist represents him in the act of testing the strength and manliness of his sons, by binding their hands and announcing that the one who will first break the cords, shall be rewarded by his sword, and he who succeeds in obtaining it, must maintain it in honor, or perish in the attempt.
