Several years ago I wrote a post about the legend of Ys, which sank because of Queen Dahut’s misuse of magic (and sexual predation). It interested me because her legend somehow got grafted onto Arianrhod, and repeated endlessly on the internet.
This is another story about how someone’s flaws and overweening ambition led to the sinking of an island, but this story comes from the Azores, and features a Prospero-like sorceror.

With the combination of Tempest-like circumstances and necromantic power, I was half expecting Genadius to isolate the girl and give her only an undead servant for company. Instead, he delivers a good warning about controlling one’s temper. Thanks for sharing this!
