    Scheherazade is a legendary Persian queen and the storyteller of One Thousand and One Nights.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scheherazade

    "...And so the King kept Scheherazade alive day by day, as he eagerly anticipated the finishing of last night's story. At the end of 1,001 nights, and 1,000 stories, Scheherazade told the king that she had no more tales to tell him. During these 1,001 nights, the king had fallen in love with Scheherazade, and so he spared her life, and made her his queen."
