The tale of Aladdin, a young man whose every wish is granted by a djinn, is part of the book One Thousand and One Nights, a collection in Arabic of popular tales handed down in an oral tradition.
Aladdin was actually Chinese not an Arabian. The only reason he became Arabian, was the Chinese fable, based in a Chinese town, was related to a Frenchman by a Syrian story teller, and was added to the One Thousand and One Nights in 1710.
Disney's 1992 animated feature is possibly today's best known re-telling of the story.
