About the name
The strikingly beautiful Cumilla, a Turkish character with a tragic fate in the epic poem „The Siege of Sziget” by Miklós Zrínyi, the poet, was born from the marriage of Sultan Suleiman the Lawgiver and Roxelana, his Ukrainian-born slave. Suleiman forced his daughter to marry his Grand Vizier, Rüstem Bey, although she loved the young Tartar Khan, the handsome Deliman.
Both Rüstem Bey and Deliman took part in the 1566 siege of Szigetvár. After a stormy meeting at the headquarters, they quarreled and Deliman killed Rüstem. Escaping the wrath of the Sultan, he fled from the Turkish camp and secretly met Cumilla, his love, in Belgrade. As the Turkish soldiers did not want to fight without Deliman, the Sultan sent a forgiving message to his daughter and Deliman, calling them back to the Szigetvár camp.
