In a land that still has Kings, I am a Princess. For the reasons I’m about to reveal, you must only know me as Sultana. What do you see when you think of a Saudi Arabian Princess? Imagine a woman gilded with jewels and living in extraordinary luxury. She is surrounded by gold, jewels, servants, and designer clothes. In reality, she lives in a gilded prison. She is a bearer of her sons and has no rights, no vote or control over her life. She is hidden behind the veil and is a prisoner. Her jailers are her father, her husband, and her sons. “Sultana” is closely related to the King and a member the Saudi royal family. She decided it was time for a woman of her rank to talk about the realities of life in her country for her daughters. She describes her life from her chaotic childhood to her happy arranged marriage. Her husband then decided to marry a second woman. She also tells about the lives of her sisters and her friends. Contrary to the warmth and camaraderie between the women, she describes a history of oppression against them. Everyday occurrences that would in any other culture be considered shocking human rights violations. The Princess is a testament to the strength and courage of a woman. “Sultana” risked her head and the heads of her children by speaking out. She told her story anonymously because she was afraid of being retaliated against by the Saudi establishment.

    “Princess” is the shocking autobiography of Princess Sultana, a Saudi royal, written by internationally acclaimed best-selling author Jean Sasson. The book is absolutely the very best book I have ever read because it is gripping, highly detailed and so incredibly moving. There are so many interesting stories that Sultana shared in the book that I will never forget. Because I felt like Princess Sultana was actually speaking to me as I read “Princess”; her thoughts and words were so vivid and…
