Eliacin had been humiliated and beaten by the uncle of his Christian lover, Bianca. The couple had fled to Greece, where Bianca had died in childbirth. Eliacin, who amassed great wealth, had assumed the name Diegarias and had raised daughter Ines a Christian. Twenty years later, as the play opens, Diegarias is now a prominent member of the court at Seville, where Ines encounters and is seduced by Don Juan in a sham marriage. When he discovers Don Juan's treachery, Diegarias demands that the nobleman marry his daughter."
