Aroldo is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi, based on his earlier work Stiffelio, which was censored for its controversial plot about a Protestant minister who forgives his adulterous wife.
In Aroldo, the setting is changed to medieval England and Scotland, and the main character is a Saxon knight who returns from the Crusades. He discovers that his wife Mina has been unfaithful with a knight named Godvino, who is killed by Mina's father Egberto. Aroldo struggles with his feelings of love and betrayal, and eventually decides to leave Mina and join a hermit named Briano. However, Mina follows him and proves her repentance by saving his life from an ambush.
Aroldo finally pardons her and they are reconciled.
