Prince Willliam was the son of King Gustavus V of Sweden. In 1915 in his travel book, In The Lands of the Sun, he wrote; The soft lines of the mighty marble dome and the defiant elevation of the four minarets formed an organic whole, so perfect, so instinct with beauty, that one involuntarily passed a hand over one's eyes, wandering whether it was not merely a beautiful dream or an unreal image.
...Peace to the memory of Arjmand Banu! And the mind was irresistibly seized with a feeling of gratitude toward this woman, whose spirit seemed still to float beneath the lofty marble vaults, simply for having lived and been capable of inspiring a feeling deep and strong enough to be perceptible to later generations after a lapse of centuries.
