Enzio, shoving the lid off the coffin, says to Rainero 'No pointless blood, my friend!'. Enzo (c.1218-72) was an illegitimate son of the Hohenstaufen emperor Frederick II, who appointed him 'King of Sardinia' in 1238. He supported his father in the wars of supremecy with the Catholic church, but was captured in 1249 and held in captivity for the remaining 22 years of his life. The deaths of the rest of his family made him the last of the Hohenstaufen heirs. The fall of the Hohenstaufen dynasty inspired a number of plays in which the events were depicted as the crushing of German culture by its enemies. This play (''König Enzio'' by Ernst Raupach (1753-1832) was adapted as an opera by Wagner in 1832.
