Saladin. Prince of Chivalry
page 142

of Burzuya the Princess was in hiding, but he had search made for her and she was found. How did he know she would be there, and why was she in hiding? Nothing had been mentioned of her prior to this time, but the Arab chronicler wrote : " She had given the Sultan many a counsel against his enemies, whose secrets she knew well, so that he held her in honor and gave her presents. He made easy her journey, and that of her family, to Antakieh, as he was in duty bound to be grateful to her, and sought to draw from their relations further advantages for the Moslem cause." The lady had a husband, a daughter and a son-in-law. She too drops out of the picture thenceforward. And with her disappears even the remotest basis for further conjecture. We meet with Saladin the statesman, Saladin the diplomat, Saladin the soldier and Saladin the mighty ruler, but never with Saladin the lover.
