Bahram Gur

Persian - Foster son of the king of Hira. He was given a number of slave girls, one of whom, Azadeh, went hunting with him. When she asked him to demonstrate his skill as an archer, he fired a pellet which grazed the ear of an antelope. When the animal raised a hoof to scratch its ear, Bahram fired an arrow that pinned the hoof to the animal's ear. Azadeh then accused him of being Ahriman himself, whereupon he knocked her to the ground and trampled her to death beneath his camel's hooves. Referred to as Bahram Gur, Bahramgor or Bahramgor.
