Default Does anyone know the truth about "Princess Gwaschemasch"?



This is a REALLY odd story. Someone who uses the name Junko Junsui has apparently altered all history about this woman ( if she even existed - I can't find if that is even true) everywhere on the internet to rewrite the story of this woman and apparently to suit herself and some sort of point she was making about Circassian women. Even the Wilkipedia entries on Gwaschemasch have been falsified. It's interesting because the hoax is so widespread; here's a link to an article about the hoax and the hoaxer. http://circasvoices.blogspot.com/201...x-cult-of.html

Anyway, she was supposedly a wife of Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II. Does anyone know anything about her that is real?
