A noteworthy example occurs in Boiardo's Orlando inamorato, cc.
Orleans is as passionate an inamorato as any which Shakspeare ever drew.
"Get up," said she, rudely pushing her inamorato off the sofa.
She was incessantly importuned, now by her father, and now by her inamorato.
Her present inamorato promised to give us this specimen of his power over her.
