Description: In 1826, Muhammad Ali, Ottoman Viceroy of Egypt, gave a royal gift to French king Charles X: a two-year-old giraffe named Zarafa. She was intended to curry political favor: Ali supported the Ottoman Turks against the Greeks in their war of independence, and hoped to keep the French out of the conflict. But she gained far more tan allegiance. Arriving in Paris in June, 1827, the first giraffe ever seen in France, she became a celebrity over the next 18 years and she won the hearts of her adopted city and nation.
