Scheherazade Hand-embroidery Flat Mules

Size 36

Point-toe, hand-embroidery flat mules cut from Cotton Fabric.


Once upon a time, there lived a Persian King who was betrayed by his wife. In anger, he vowed to marry a new woman each day and have the previous one beheaded, so that she would have no chance of being unfaithful to him. After 1000 wives, his vizier could no longer find virgins of noble blood for him. Scheherazade, the vizier’s wise and witty daughter, volunteered to marry the king in spite of his father's protests. On the first evening spent with the King, she began telling him a gripping story. She weaved the tale all through the night, stopping with a cliffhanger. When the king asked her to finish the story, Scheherazade said there was no time for dawn was breaking. The king decided to spare her life for one day to finish the story the next night. This went on and on and on, until the 1,001st night. Can you guess what happened that night?
