Rum is the Arabic name for Rome.
As the sun sets on the fiftieth night, Khujasta attempts to leave to visit her lover. She is stopped by Tuti, the clever talking parrot, who begins to tell a story about the princess of Rum and the anguish caused by her son. The parrot’s tale lasts until sunrise, and Khujasta is again unable to meet with her lover.
