Is it really hard not to have sex every day in harem?
Moulay Ismail (Muley Ismael) was the first Sultan of Moroccan dynasties Alawites, and he ruled longer than any other rulers of this country – from 1672 to 1727. He claimed to be a descended from Prophet Muhammad himself, the founder of Islam.
In the history of Morocco, Sultan Ismail Ibn Sharif was known as the “King Warrior” for his military campaigns and “The Bloodthirsty” – for the cruelty to the enemies and the opposition, as well as the fact that he is the biological father of more than 1,000 children.
Sultan Ismail: ruthless ruler, a fierce warrior, and father of 1171 children
Some consider it a legend, others believe it to be the truth, and now the speculation can end after scientists have reportedly proven that it is indeed possible that Moroccan Sultan Moulay Ismaïl was the biological father of over 1,000 children.
It’s Really Hard Not to Have Sex Every Day in Harem
Moreover, the French diplomat Dominique Busno when visiting Morocco in 1704 recorded that the Sultan has the 1171 children from four official wives and 500 concubines. At that time, Ismail was 57. According to the Guinness Book of Records, Sultan Ismail was the father of 888 children. This is a man with the largest number of children in history, and this data can be checked.
Some researchers have claimed that Ismail would not have so many children, as reported by Busno. First, not every day a woman can get pregnant. In addition, many women suffer from infertility and sterility, especially in developing countries. However, other experts say that it is entirely possible. Questions of women infertility and the quality of the sperm to be capable of fertilizing eggs have come up to debunk the once believed “myth.” The different reproductive studies have reportedly confirmed his fatherhood and put all doubts to sleep.
According to a Live Science report, scientists and anthropologists at the University of Vienna have done a computer simulation program to find out how often Sultan Moulay would have needed to engage in sex in order to father 1,171 children in a period of 32 years.
The study revealed that “The Bloodthirsty” ruler, as he was called, could be the biological father of the 1,171 kids if he had an intimate relationship between 0.83 to 1.43 times per day, that is an average of having sex every day throughout 32 years until he turned 56 years old.
How do you get enough mothers for that many children? Easy! The Sultan was known to have had four wives and 500 concubines, In addition, yet the study showed only 65 to 110 women would have been necessary to give birth to more than 1,000 babies.
Moulay Ismail was known being “ruthless” having murdered over 30,000 people plus those fallen in war, hence earning the nickname “The Bloodthirsty”
Even to the mothers of his hundreds of children, he was not very nice. It is believed that if he had any “suspicion of adultery” he strangled the concubines, chopped their breasts off, or simply knocked out their teeth. As a man who had sex every day, it was best not to glance at any of his 504 women, running the risk of being murdered. In today’s Morocco to the present day is ruled by the dynasty of Alawites.
