This beetle has at least a curious past.
The lytta vesicatoria or Spanish fly can say that killed a king, a Catholic King.
King Ferdinand II of Aragon, 53, married Germana de Foix 18 years old.
In an effort to give an heir to his kingdom, allegedly made use of this beetle Spanish fly (also known as Spanish fly), once dead, dry and reduced to powder, used since ancient times as a vasodilator substance, the effects are very similar to those produced by the "viagra". The abuse of this aphrodisiac consumption could cause severe congestion episodes of the monarch, resulting in a brain hemorrhage.
We attempted to ban the use, due to the large number of poisoning deaths, however, it became fashionable in France in the eighteenth century with luxuryl parties and known "pills Richelieu".
