Rulei is a ruby which, according to legend, was in the crown of the Virgin of the monastery of Santa María la Real de Nájera.
After the battle of Nájera in 1367 and the failure of Peter I "the Cruel" to pay the "Black Prince", Edward of Lancaster (Prince of Wales) for his help during the Castilian civil war between him and his half-brother Henry II of Trastámara, the ruby passed into English hands.
Known since then as the "Black Prince's Rubyis the most famous spinel in the world, which has been resting since 1838 in the heart of the British Imperial Crownforged for Queen Victoria.
