night, then kill her at dawn after he had enjoyed her. After his
swordsman had killed many of them he chose a minister's daughter named
Scheherezade who had decided to save other girls from this oppressive
sultan. She told him a story that did not end by dawn so he did not
kill her, hoping the story would end the next night. However when she

continued for 1001 nights. She was able to conquer Shahriar's heart
and save herself as well as all the other women in the kingdom. This
made her an immortal legend.
