The scene represents the culmination of Ines de Castro during the coronation of King Peter of Portugal in 1357. It came to the throne after a rebellion against his father provoked by the murder of Ines de Castro that Prince loved and married secretly, despite the opposition of the king. According to the legend that surrounds this historical fact, Peter would have to dig up the corpse of Ines to be crowned, forcing the whole court to honor him. This episode of chronic Portugal is very fashionable in the eighteenth century and the nineteenth and often repeated scene in literary works it inspires. But in his own play, Victor Hugo, does not take this macabre episode, replacing it with an appearance of the ghost of Ines calling for reconciliation.

This table was presented at the Salon of 1827, under the title "Public Tributes in the church of Santa Clara Coimbra, the remains of Ines de Castro, exhumed and proclaimed Queen of Portugal pat Don Pedro orders in 1350" under number 1732 of supplement to the catalog. Filed after the opening of the exhibition, the work has been exhibited in February 1828 in the third hook where it honors the square living room. This third snap is taken advantage of by the Count de Forbin, director of museums and implementer of the show, to group in this prestigious hall square that is the living room, the most noted works of the Romantic artists whom he favored . This initiative will relaunch the debate and controversy surrounding romantic. Thus, alongside the "Sardanapalus" Eugène Delacroix, the "Massacre of the Janissaries" Charles Champmartin, of "Athalie" of Xavier Sigalon of "The Birth of Henry IV" Eugene Deveria, the "Mazeppa "Louis Boulanger," Ines de Castro "does it take place in this key moment in the history of romantic painting. After the Show, St. Evre receive a first class medal. The painting then remained in the artist's studio until it is offered by the Duke and Duchess of Orleans to Victor Hugo and be delivered Place Royale (Place des Vosges July 4, 1837). This donation reflects the closer relations between Hugo and family at the wedding of the Duke of Orleans and is in a kind of soap opera in which intertwines the case of the Legion of Honor and the publication of " inner voices. " June 7, 1837 "La Presse", the newspaper of Emile de Girardin, where Dumas wrote, seems an article is surprised that neither Balzac or Dumas or Hugo (as an officer) is registered with the promotion list in the order of the legion of honor on the occasion of the marriage of the Duke Ferdinand Philippe and Duchess Helene of Mecklenburg-Schwerin celebrated on May 30. Madame Hugo, in "Victor Hugo recounted by a witness of his life" (part 6, chapter 8) reports that Hugo Dumas came to see "very angry: he was going to be promotions in the Legion of Honor; King seeing his name on one of the lists that had been presented to him, had scratched; this offense had sent him the invitation he had received. "Similarly, the next day, Hugo wrote to the Duke that he will not surrender his invitation to Versailles due to forgetfulness of his colleagues for the Legion of Honor. The 9 Duke replied that these omissions will be corrected and 10, Dumas and Hugo attend Versailles, at the party for the opening of "historical museum dedicated to all the glories of France." On 26 or 27 June seems the collection "The inner voice" that Victor Hugo sent a copy to the Duchess. On July 3, Dumas made a Knight of the Legion of Honor and promoted to officer Hugo. The next day, July 4, the table Gillot Saint-Evre comes Place Royale with, on the frame, an inscription with the date of June 27 (the publication of the "inner voice". In his memoirs, Alexandre Dumas tells the role he played in this gift which he said he suggested the idea to the prince: "in 1837, I entered the Crown Prince as he was sent to Victor Hugo, in recognition of a volume of poems addressed by the poet to the Duchess of Orleans, I know not what snuffbox or any diamond ring. He pointed to the object in question, and announced his destination, leaving me see that I was threatened with the same. / - Oh my lord, by grace I said, not send to Hugo ring or tabatière.- Why / -? this is what other prince would do, and the Duke of Orleans, my Duke Orléans to me, not any other. it's him, it is to say, a wit, a man of heart, an artist / - what do you want me her bewitching ie ? / - Pick a picture from your gallery, no matter which, provided it belonged to your highness. Get to the bottom: Given by the Crown Prince Victor Hugo and send him cela.- Well, either! Better still looking me in a painter friends, a table that can please Hugo; buy it, let me make, and I will give him. There will thus be two happy instead of one: the painter whom I will buy it, the poet to whom I give. "Dumas had first thought of a painting by Delacroix but unable to agree with him has carried on the work of St. Èvre. Should we see this finally a thank gift for Dumas Legion of Honor and a tribute to "The inner voice"? In return, Hugo gives a feast in honor of the Duke and Duchess on 21 January 1838. piously preserved by Hugo, the picture is one of the few objects that escaped the auction organized by Victor Hugo in Paris furniture on 8 and 9 June 1852, when the poet had taken refuge in Brussels on December 12, 1851. he was transferred to Guernsey where he was hung in the pool Hauteville House. He remained until his transfer to Paris in 2002.
