Gulna’re (2 syl.),
afterwards called Kaled, queen of the harem, and fairest of all the slaves of Seyd [Seed]. She was rescued from the flaming palace by Lord Conrad, the corsair, and when the corsair was imprisoned released him and murdered the Sultan. The two escaped to the Pirate’s Isle; but when Conrad found that Medo’ra, his betrothed, was dead, he and Gulnare left the island secretly, and none of the pirates ever knew where they went to. The rest of the tale of Gulnare is under the new name, Kaled (q.v.). (Byron: The Corsair.)   1
