Thank you for posting this. Some history that doesn't get put into the school books and I doubt ever will.
The quote by Shah Abbas,
Shah Abbas asked the queen to convert to Islam from Christianity and join his harem.
clearly shows his total lack of understanding both of a Queen and a Christian woman (superficially). It was a foregone conclusion that the answer
would be NO on both accounts. Harem or not, you never ask a Queen to become a prostitute for your pleasure. And the Queen was a Christian and he was
stupid enough to ask her to deny Christ which she would not do being a believer even though it meant death.
On the other hand he could have known that this would be the answer and since he might be tired of feeding, clothing and providing a house for her,
ask her the two questions that he knew would be rejected. Thus giving him Islamic grounds to have her tortured and then murdered.
