As a Swiss patriot, a man of honour, and an educated man receptive to the nationalist theories of the day, it was important to him to believe that such people existed. The true Bedouin were a mirage which danced tantalizingly before his eyes, and those of many travellers after him. Burckhardt's books were well received in England and he rapidly came to be regarded as the standard authority on things Arabian. His description of the Meccan aristocracy, the far-ranging Sherifian family who claimed descent from the Prophet, seems to have been of particular interest to English readers.

European travellers in the Lebanon in the 1830s made a point of visiting her in her mountain fastness and recording in their books the harangues, ranging from the mystical to the malicious, to which they willingly subjected themselves. 15 Rumours reached England of her vast influence over the tribes and her alleged possession of a Bedouin lover.
