Iskandar visits Qaydafa disguised as a messenger
Public Notes
Iskandar arrives at Qaydafa's palace disguised as his minister and accompanied by her son, whom he had rescued on the way to her. Qaydafa has Iskandar's portrait brought from the treasury and recognises him. Later she privately confronts Iskandar with the portrait.

[Most - but not all - of the miniatures depict either Qaydafa's recognition of Iskandar, or her confronting him with the portrait.]
