Question
Hi there

In the Arabian Knights, what does the title "Kalender" Prince mean and what is it's origin? How does it differ from a regular Prince?

Many thanks

Max

Answer
Hi Max,

Sorry but the Arabian nights are a Persian piece of art not an Arabic one. So I don't know what Kalender means, but I doubt it means anything I think there is a transliteration fault of some kind, the word doesn't ring a bell.


Cheers
