KOH-I-NOOR

Efter sigende var den der ejede Koh-i-noor diamanten, også den der styrede verden.

Koh-i-noor Diamanten lå skjult i Maharaja'ens turban under Persernes invasion af Delhi i 1738. Et medlem af haremmet afslørede Koh-i-noor’s gemmested og diamanten blev franarret Maharajaen under en fest, hvor der blev foreslået at bytte turban, som et tegn på broderskab og evigt venskab.
Rygter siger at da Nadir Shah, den persiske shah, lagde øjnene på stenen, skulle have udbrudt: "kohinoor", som betyder "lysets bjerg".

Koh-i-noor diamanten er aldrig blevet solgt eller købt, men har skiftet mange hænder igennem vold og magt.

En del af Koh-i-noor diamanten sidder nu i den engelske kongelige krone og er opbevaret sammen med kronjuvelerne i Tower of London.

Accordingly, the one who owned the Koh-i-noor diamond was also the ruler of the world.

The Koh-i-noor Diamond was hidden in the turban of the Maharaja during the Persian invasion of Delhi in 1738. A member of the harem revealed the hiding place of Koh-i-noor and the diamond was tricked from the Maharaja during a party, where it was suggested to exchange turbans as a sign of brotherhood and eternal friendship.
Rumors say that when Nadir Shah, the Persian shah, laid his eyes on the stone should have proclaimed: ”kohinoor” which means ”mountain of light”.

The Koh-i-noor diamond has never been sold or bought, but has changed through many hands because of violence and power.

A part of the Koh-i-noor diamond is now situated in the English Royal Crown and is stored with the crown jewels in The Tower of London.
