Ramadan Arabian Nights 2011 : Princess Badr Al Budur and the sultan of gypsies “1”

Ok here is another interesting tonight with our Ramadan Arabian nights , tonight we will start the tale of Princess Badr Al Budur and the Sultan of Gypsies.

Badr-al-budur and the king of gypsies-1 by egyptianchronicles

If you notice this tale was not introduced by the legendary radio anchorman Mahmoud Shabaan like the previous episodes. This 553th episode by the way.

Now there is a problem I am facing and I am asking the experts of Arab literature to help me in finding the Arabic original text of the story , I can’t find it either in English , in the Richard Burton’s translation or any other translation the tale of Princess Badr Al Budur and the sultan of gypsies.

I know that Taher Abu Fasha did not made up a story himself but he may changed in names and in places.

Already the name of princess Badr Al Budur is mentioned as the famous heroine of Aladdin and the magic lamp tale.

The story of Badr Al Budur and Dumdum , the Sultan of Gypsies is quite interesting for real and this is why I want to find its English translation as well as the original Arabic text.

I will not deny and claim that I read in the original book because if you have ever read the original you will know how many stories inside stories and tales inside tales are in the book to the level that you forgot the tales.

I feel angry that I can’t find the story in English so please help me finding it if you can.
