Aladdin's lamp is a famous lamp in one of the stories in The Thousand and One Nights.
The story is about a poor young man named Aladdin, who helps a magician get a wonderful oil lamp from a dangerous magic cave. The magician tries to cheat Aladdin, so Aladdin keeps the lamp himself. He soon finds that a bad-tempered genie lives inside the lamp and must obey whoever holds the lamp. With the genie's help, Aladdin becomes a rich and powerful man and is able to marry the beautiful Princess Badroulbadour.
The magician finally gets the lamp back by tricking the princess, who does not know how important the lamp is. Aladdin discovers that a ring left by the magician when he was cheating Aladdin controls a less powerful but more polite genie. With the help of this genie, Aladdin is able to get his wife and the lamp back.
