Title for a 1980s book

Book possibly early 80s. Setting was in a castle type of building. The H was the king or head of the castle. The h was a servant. I remember the H did not like his brothers servant girlfriend so he pulled her into his room and checked that she was a virgin, this girl then hanged herself in the castle stairway. His brother was mad.

The h was accused of stealing jewellery. She denied it. The H said she could admit that she stole the jewellery or would receive 15 lashes of the whip. She refused. She was taken out into the whipping area and I remember the man who would administer the lashes didn't want to but she told him it was OK. The H turns away and cant watch after so many. Then I think he got to 11 and the lasher refused to give any more. The h is taken to the houses outside the castle and is extremely sick and almost dies. She ends up meeting the H again, I think he says he is sorry for the lashes.

I think I can't forget the book because of the 15 lashes of the whip. I would like to read it again to see if it is anything like I remember it. If you can help I would appreciate it. Thanks

Ok question, in this book was it the hero's previous mistress that took the jewellry and hid it in her room so she would be punished, while the hero was away from the castle. Thinking the hero would leave the heroine and come back to her.

A long shot but the plot reminds me a little of one of the Eden books by Marilyn Harris, maybe the first one?

Book is Conqueror by Brenda Joyce. I read it a couple of years ago, and I wouldn't mind reading it again.

Thank you but that is not it. The heroine in The Conqueror was whipped for treason, for trying to help her brothers escape.
