These Mamlucks, in the origin, were Turkisk soldiers at the service of Egyptian chief of state.Qot of the theme - but taking advantage of this word - I reveal that in Italian slang there is the funny term "mammalucco" just deriving from Mamluck. Not vulgar, it means "stupid" or, generally, a person acting with slow reflexes.

I'm not a turban expert ... I would expect bright colors.
