The magician had a magic ring which could almost get what he wanted, but he was too greedy and wanted to own the more powerful enchanted lamp. As a result, he got nothing, which is a good lesson for everyone. Aladdin was a lazy, good-for-nothing boy, but he was so lucky to be rich and got married with the princess. What an incredible life he led! Although the princess was rich, she took advantage of the stupid lamp-seller that actually the wicked magician pretended to be and let the maid exchange the old but enchanted lamp for a new but ordinary one.
