Badroulbadour ("full moon of full moons") is a princess from the far east to whom Aladdin was married in The Story of Aladdin; or, the Wonderful Lamp (the full moon as a metaphor for female beauty is common throughout the Arabian Nights).

When Aladdin finds the magic lamp, he discovers it contains a djinn bound to do the bidding of the person holding the lamp. With the aid of the djinn, Aladdin —an impoverished young man who, in other circumstances, could not have aspired to marry a princess— becomes rich and powerful and marries Princess Badroulbadour.


  • In the animated Disney film, her name was changed to Jasmine (probably because it was easier for the American audience to pronounce).
