Prince Ahmed

I shot my arrow farther than my brothers but since it could not be found, the hand of the princess went to my second eldest brother, Ali. My eldest brother was so upset about losing the contest that he renounced all his rights to succession and went off to become a hermit. I too did not attend Ali’s wedding. I have gone in search of my arrow.
