About Queen Scheherazade (Queen S)

King Shahryar was blinded by rage when he discovered that his wife was unfaithful. Revenging against women, the King married a virgin every day only to kill her the next morning. A few eligible women were left in the kingdom when Scheherazade volunteered to marry the enraged monarch to save women from his tyranny.

It is said that Scheherazade read a thousand books and spoke in poetic rhymes. Once in his chambers, Scheherazade asked Shahryar if she could bid farewell to her sister Dunyazad, who had secretly prepared to ask Scheherazade to tell a story. Shahryar agreed. Scheherazade narrated her first story while the monarch lay awake listening in awe. When the dawn broke, Scheherazade stopped the story in the middle. Shahryar spared Scheherazade's life to the next day as he eagerly awaited to hear the rest of her story.

For the next 1,001 nights, Scheherazade, drawing on her broad intellect, narrated stories to Shahryar that emphasized empathy, wisdom, and kindness. By the one-thousand-and-oneth night, Shahryar had fallen in love with Scheherazade, decided to spare her life, and Scheherazade reigned as the Queen of the kingdom for decades to come.
