Solomon

Muslim - King of the world, animals and spirits; A dragon-slayer. He killed Jarada's father but she nevertheless married him and persuaded him to worship her father's image, whereupon god stripped him of his magic powers. These powers were invested in a ring made of twelve jewels presented by the four animals, the four angels and the four spiritual beings who paid homage to Solomon when he became king. Each of these stones bore a secret mark or character. When he finally recovered the ring, his powers returned and he forced Jarada to convert to Islam. It was said that he travelled on a flying carpet which was supported by jinns who were so huge and ugly that they frightened all into accepting Islam. Also commonly known as Solomon, Saloman, Saloman, Salomon, Soloman or Solomon.
