Trivia Edit

  • Fort Qaitbey (referenced when Sadie's capers take her to Alexandria) was commissioned in 1480 by a Mamluk sultan, and was built over (and out of) the ruins of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Pharos lighthouse. The latter was built in the 3rd century BCE during the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus, but after sixteen centuries and several earthquakes was effectively abandoned.
