Based on a true story, The Ruby Bird’s life began hundreds of years ago in India. The Maharaja presented a ruby and emerald broach to Sultan Suleiman the Magnificant as a wedding gift. For years, the broach lay in a jeweled box, untouched, until his seventh wife found it. She immediately pinned it on the sultan’s turban. Soon after, the Sultan passed away, and the palace became a museum. His statue, garbed in his royal robes and jeweled turban was displayed in a museum as a tribute to the glorious years of the Ottoman Empire. A trusted night watchman stole the ruby bird from the turban and sold it in the black-market bazaar for a handsome price. He and the Ruby Bird disappeared. And thus the story begins.
