From Where it Started
Sultan Shehryar was a great king who had just expanded his kingdom from Turkey to China. He unfortunately turned into a beast, a sad consequence of his wife being disloyal. The beast would marry a virgin and kill her the very next day. This became his habit and Vazir’s daughter Sheharzade came as an answer to all this misfortune. She got married to this beast and to escape from being killed, started to narrate stories every night. The stories were mainly about eastern wisdom, human greatness and sacrifice - things that a beast would never have heard of. The beast would get curious about the stories and want to hear more of the magic lamp or the forty thieves or the genie imprisoned in the brass bottle. This made the beast spare the princess for just one more night, until 1 became 1001.
