The family Ragazzi had five children, all of which were gifted artists and acrobats. Near the city of Machogwa they made their winter quarters and paid the major well for his permission.

But soon there was a conflict with some of the locals, and the Ragazzi waggon was put to the torch. Three of Sarlon's siblings burnt alive that night, and his youngest sister Sofia escaped the flames only after being scarred with burn marks.

Sarlon, der Narrenprinz: Sarlon war der älteste Sohn der Schausteller Familie Ragazzi die seit hunderten von Jahren durch die Reiche zieht. Sie gehörten auch zum damaligen "Rat der Vagabunden" der sich um alle Angelegenheiten von Schaustellerfamilien in den Südlanden kümmert. Die Familie Ragazzi hatte fünf Kinder die alle sehr begabte Künstler und Akrobaten waren. Nahe der Stadt Machogwa nahm die Sippe sie ihr Winterquatier und bezahlten den Bürgermeister fürstlich dafür.

Doch die Bevölkerung geriet in Streit mit der Familie Ragazzi und steckten ihre Wagen in Brand... 3 der Geschwister Sarlon's Verbrannten bei lebendigem Leib. Und die kleinste Schwester Sofia, entkam auf Lebzeit entstellt, den Flammen...

In den Jahren darauf wurde das ehemals schöne Mädchen mit Spott und Blicken übersäht und wurde ganz trübsinnig. Auch das Laufen fiel ihr ab diesem Zeitpunkt schwer und die Kinder lachten sie aus. Das schmerzte Sarlon so sehr das er eines Tages sprach: "Geliebte Schwester, dein Leid schmerzt mein Herz jeden Tag, ich will den Spott an deiner Stelle ertragen." So ging er und schnitt sich die Ohren und die Nase ab um ab und stellte sich zur schau. "Sehet da kommt Sarlon, der Narrenprinz" riefen Sie.

Die Geschichte Sarlon's verbreitete sich an den Lagerfeuern wie ein Lauffeuer und die die Zigeuner, Schausteller, Missgeburten, Quacksalber und Jongleure sahen das Sarlon der reinen Liebe wegen so gehandelt hatte und sagten: "Oh Sarlon, vom reinen Herz, sei unser Zigeunerkönig."

Doch Sarlon lehnte ab und ging in die Fremde.

Seit dieser Zeit wurde die Geschichte den Kindern erzählt um Sie zu lehren das die Familie und Sippe des Fahrenden Volkes das höchste gut sei. Und die reine Liebe im Inneren des Menschen liegt und nicht im äußeren. Diese Botschaft gab den hoffnungslosen Hoffnung und den missgestalteten spendete sie trost.
