MANFRED

***

Manfred’s soul is saved

In the last moment of life

He repented fully

***

NOTE: Manfred wants Dante to take good news to his — Manfred’s — daughter: He has been saved. Most people would think that Manfred’s soul is in the Inferno because he was excommunicated, but he sincerely repented in the last moment of his life as he lay dying on a battlefield.
