Azʹo

,

Marquis of Estē, married Parisiʹna, who fell in love with Hugo, a natural son of Azo. The marquis ordered Hugo to be beheaded; but no one knows what the fate of Parisiʹna was. Azo, at any rate, married again, and had a family. This Azo was in reality Niccolo of Ferraʹra. (Byron: Parisina.)
