Las concubinas y esclavas de Hasan II


«Hassan II possessed some forty concubines, in adition to forty inherited from his father, each of whom had a special task: washing the monarch’s feet, dressing him on holidays, bearing incense, or keeping the palace keys. There were also slaves, whose ancestors had been bought from African slave traders and who had served in the royal palace for generations. The women slaves cared for the kitchen and housework and sometimes became «third class concubines,» while the men waited on table, took care of the royal garage, and act as the king’s spies.»
