“Blood Seeped Under the Door, Down the Steps, and into the Street…”

On the corner of Orleans Avenue and Dauphine Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans is a stately three-and-a-half-story mansion that is said to be the site of a massacre so significant that blood flowed from the building and into the street.

It is the tale of a mysterious Turkish gentleman, perhaps even the brother of a Sultan, who arrived in New Orleans, threw wild parties, and was then viciously murdered.

But is this story true or is it like the city of New Orleans— the product of an ever-changing cultural landscape that merges the past and the present; evolving and intersecting with other well-known legends like that of Pere Antoine’s Date Palm, or The Tree of the Dead.
