Al iris.
Sultan of Lower Buchar’ia. Under the disguised name of Fer’amorz, he accompanied Lalla Rookh, his betrothed, from Delhi, and won her heart by his ways, and the tales he told on the journey. The lady fell in love with the poet, and was delighted to find, on the morning of the wedding, that Feramorz was, in fact, the sultan, her intended husband.—T. Moore: Lalla Rookh.   1
