It is necessary to have good relations, in order to divide the territory of the Mediterranean between the two great empires in the future.

Knowing the Requesens family's love for Saracen shows, Ismail I sent the jewel to a group of Persian dancers who would delight the family and their noble friends for as long as they like.
