Shakespeare's Othello concludes with Desdemona's kin planning to "...seize upon the fortunes of the Moor...." Fortunes of the Moor supposes Desdemona, disowned by her father, takes refuge at a convent and gives birth to a son. After the Venetian victory in Cyprus under Othello's command, Desdemona leaves their infant son at the Venetian convent and joins Othello in Cyprus.

The play is set in Othello's home village where an African griot tells the story. Othello's family journeys to Venice to find Othello's son and raise him as their own while Desdemona's kin connive to claim Othello's fortune by deceit, kidnapping and murder.
