Abstract:

A young Florentine traveller calling himself the 'Mogor dell'Amore', the Mughal of Love, arrives at the court of the real Grand Mughal, the Emperor Akbar of Hindustan, with a tale which enchants the whole imperial capital. The stranger claims to be the child of a lost Mughal princess, Qara Koz, 'Lady Black Eyes', who is captured first by an Uzbeg warlord, then by the Shah of Persia, and finally becomes the lover of Argalia, a Florentine soldier of fortune, commander of the armies of the Ottoman Sultan. When Argalia and his Mughal mistress return home, her presence mesmerises the city and much trouble ensues. But what if Mogor's story is true? What happened to the lost princess? And if he's a liar, must he die?
