Scena V
Garibaldo solo

Garibaldo
Eduige, t'inganni;
io della tua corona amante sono,
e sol con le tue nozze cerco
un pretesto per salire al trono.
Di Cupido impiego i vanni
per salire al regal soglio,
mentre ei solo alletta il cor.
Copro amor d'ascosti inganni
perché a me sarebbe scoglio
ogni affetto adulator.
Di Cupido...
(parte)

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene V

Garibaldo
Edwig, thou widely dost deceive thy self,
I am no more than suitor top thy crown,
and only make thy nuptials a pretext
to leap into a throne – there ends my love.

On bright Cupids pow`rful wings
to empire summits I would soar;
gain, by loves hid cheats, the pow`r
and perch upon the throne of Kings.
Scene VI
A cypress-grove, in which are seen the monument of the kings of Lombardy; and among them, the urn, newly erected to Bertarido.
