Raw Answer: The Dwarf or Dvargen

A post-copulatory execution in this work reminds the title character of a similar experience with his pet kitten, 1 and he is appalled by another character's request to dissect the corpse of Francesco. Early on he strangles his only rival, Jehoshaphat, and information provided by him leads to the beheading of Giovanni for sleeping with Angelica. He participates 2 in a military campaign against Il Toro and the Montanzas with the help of Boccarossa, who switches sides after the title character poisons Lodovico and his master's best friend, Don Ricardo. He had earlier been entrusted with love letters to Don Ricardo from a woman of whose death by flogging he is eventually accused. After Teodora's death, Bernardo, a fictionalization of da Vinci, paints a portrait of her for the unnamed Prince who is the title character's master. For 10 points name this novel about the 26 inch tall Piccolino by P? Lagerkvist.
