There once lived a poor tailor, who had a son called Aladdin…

That’s the beginning of one of the world’s most famous fairy tales: “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp”. It’s about a poor boy who is used by an evil sorcerer to risk his life in order to retrieve a magical lamp from a treasure cave. However, by chance, Aladdin discovers the secret of the lamp himself: in the lamp, there is a powerful jinn, with whose help the poor boy not only escapes from the cave but also wins the hand of the beautiful daughter of a sultan and becomes the ruler of a kingdom.

The story of “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp” is from the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, a classic of world literature that has become the epitome of the fairy-tale Near East for many people. In fact, it’s a compilation of stories used by the beautiful Scheherazade to entertain her husband containing tales that come from many different cultures. The oldest ones date back to late antiquity, around AD 250.
