Bahram Gur's mount tramples Azada
Public Notes
Azada gazes pitifully but silently on the slaughtered gazelles. Bahram angrily pushes her off his mount and tramples her to death, resolving never again to take a woman with him when he goes hunting.

[Thus in the oldest Mss., and in most of the copies displayed on this site; Azada dies without saying a word. Mohl's vss. 195-196 (which are also in Khaleghi's Ms. Q2] have the girl insult the king, saying that he had acted like a div, not a man. This is an interesting attempt to provide some justification (or at least an explanation) for the king's cruelty.]
