Origin

Scheherazade's father is the vizier of King Shahryār. Every day, on the king's order, he beheads the brides of Shahryar. He does this for many years until all the unmarried women in the kingdom have either been killed or run away, at which point Scheherazade offers to marry the king.

The vizier tells Scheherazade the Tale of the Bull and the Ass, in an attempt to discourage his daughter from marrying the king. It does not work and she marries Shahryar anyway.

Scheherazade's father eventually goes to Samarkand where he replaces Shāhzamā as sultan.

Notes

Not to be confused with the Disney villain of the same name who is NOT public domain.
