Bettina.
 
A mascotte who always brought good luck wherever she went. Though a mere peasant, she is taken to the Prince of Piombino’s palace of Laurent, to avert his ill-luck; but by marrying Pippo (a shepherd) she loses her gift. However, the prince is reminded that the children of a mascotte are hereditary mascottes, and makes Bettna promise that her first child shall be adopted by the prince. (See MASCOTTE.)   1
