Peace Between Kings

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

This is an old European riddle from 1300-1900 AD.

They took me from my mother's side
Where I was bravely bred
And when to age I did become
They did cut off my head.
They gave to me some diet drink
That often made me mad
But it made peace between two kings
And made two lovers glad.

that is perhaps... the best riddle i have seen on here, all clues are misleading, but once you put one and one together, they fit perfectly

I also think this is a good riddle. However, I would have needed a hint in order to have guessed it.
