Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Scena II
Eduige, Rodelinda e Flavio

Eduige
Rodelinda, sì mesta
ritorni a posseder talamo e trono?

Rodelinda
O mesta, o lieta, io sono
tua Regina se'l voglio.

Eduige
E credi a Grimoaldo? E credi a quello
che spergiuro, e rubello
mancò di fede a G
undeberto, e a me?

Rodelinda
Grimoaldo era duca, ed ora è re.

English Libretto or Translation:

Scene II
Edwig, Rodelinda and Flavio

Edwig
Is Rodelinda with such a melancholy face returned
from the enjoyments of a bridal bed,
and the possession of her new gained throne?

Rodelinda
Or sad, or joyful, let me be, no matter;
thee, as thy Queen, I can command, at pleasure

Edwig
Do`st trust to Grimoaldo, trust to him,
that perjured traitor,
monster of a rebel,
who broke his faith to Gondibert and me?

Rodelinda
Then Grimaldo was a Duke,
but now he is a King.
