Agrabah[1] is a realm in Fairy Tale Land featured on Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and Once Upon a Time.

Background

Agrabah is a realm in Fairy Tale Land which is across the dessert from the Enchanted Forest, notably Prince Eric's kingdom. It is divided into cities[2] with each city ruled by a Sultan, Sultana or both. The ruler of the realm resides at the Capital of Agrabah and commands the other leaders in diplomatic affairs.

Magic is widely known in most of the cities in Agrabah. Most of the inhabitants fear those who practice magic. In such case, the inhabitants scatters away to safety when in contact with a practitioner despite never being in any danger. Their perception of magic is that it is evil and thinks that all practitioners of magic are bad. The realm is also the origin place of the existence of genies capable of making magical wishes. The creation of the genies are loosely connected to the existence of the Water Spirit, Nyx, who resides at Agrabah's Well of Wonders.

Agrabah's status since the casting of the Evil Queen's curse is currently not known but the capital, along with the inhabitants, vanished months before the curse was cast. It is highly assumed that the remaining inhabitants from the other cities froze in time, much like the other parts of Fairy Tale Land.

After possessing the genie bottle, Jafar lets Amara into the tavern to harm the Bartender.

("The Serpent")

Becoming a powerful sorcerer, Jafar returns to the Sultan's Palace and confronts the Sultan. He challenges Prince Mirza into a dual, but Prince Mirza backs away, afraid of Jafar. Jafar then kills him and imprisons the Sultan. Jafar then tracks down the last genie bottle to a peddler's home. In order to protect the genie in the bottle, the Peddler uses his wish to send the genie bottle far away from Fairy Tale Land. Angered at the Peddler's action, Jafar chokes him to death. Not being able to obtain the last genie bottle, Jafar travels to the Capital of Agrabah and controls the Sultan of Agrabah, making him the Sultan's Vizier. ("Trust Me", "Bad Blood", "Street Rats")

One day, at the Capital's Marketplace, Jafar punishes a group of thieves by turning them into rats. At the time, Aladdin pickpockets the unaware citizens and rushes for cover after seeing the punishment being carried out. At a safe area, Aladdin counts his findings, only to be interrupted by a women. The women reveals herself as Princess Jasmine, recruiting Aladdin to help her locate the Diamond of the Rough to defeat Jafar from controlling her father, the Sultan of Agrabah. During their conversation, a Red Bird spies on them. Aladdin and Princess Jasmine later travels in the dessert to the Cave of Wonders where they find the diamond to be fake. Instead, the ceiling of the cave collapses on them but before it could hurt them, Aladdin uses magic and shields them from harm. As Aladdin is surprised that he has magic, Princess Jasmine tells him that he is to be the Savior of Agrabah. When Aladdin need some time alone, Princess Jasmine returns to the Capital Palace to tell he father about her discovery. After Princess Jasmine leaves, Jafar confronts Aladdin, using the Red Bird and shows Aladdin his future, where he will die as the Savior. Jafar then hands him a pair of golden shears that once belonged to the Fates to free himself from his fate. ("Street Rats")

At the Capital Palace, Princess Jasmine tells her father about the Savior who will save Agrabah, but is interrupted by Jafar. Jafar tells Princess Jasmine that she is in-between his way to become the ruler of Agrabah. He then traps Princess Jasmine in an hourglass to drown her. On the Magic Carpet, Aladdin flies into the Palace to save Princess Jasmine. He breaks Jafar's Serpent Staff into half, freeing Princess Jasmine from the hourglass and the Sultan of Agrabah from Jafar's control. Angered by Aladdin's actions, Jafar manifests himself away from the Palace. With Jafar gone, Princess Jasmine introduces Aladdin to her father. Later, at the marketplace, Aladdin asks Princess Jasmine to join him to track Jafar down but Princess Jasmine declines, hoping to stack back and fix Agrabah. As Aladdin leaves the marketplace, the golden shears magically teleports to him with a letter from Jafar, offering him a second chance to use it and free himself from being the Savior. ("Street Rats")

Jafar later chases a man, Emir, to a hideout cottage somewhere in the dessert. As the man asks help from Aladdin, the Oracle, Aladdin's caretaker, tells him that Aladdin isn't seeing anyone at the moment. Moments later, Jafar shows up at the doorway and turns Emir to dust using the Serpent Staff. Jafar then knocks out the Oracle before seeking an audience with Aladdin. Jafar mentions to Aladdin about their history, where Jafar reveals that despite Aladdin defeating him, he still feel that Aladdin has honour. As Aladdin asks Jafar to kill him, Jafar mocks Aladdin, refusing to kill him. Instead, he tells Aladdin that as the Savior of Agrabah, he will meet an unpleasant ending, like all the other Saviors of the land. ("The Savior")

After Aladdin leaves Agrabah, the Capital of Agrabah is attacked. As Aladdin is missing, Princess Jasmine seeks help from the neighboring kingdom. On the way back to the Capital of Agrabah, she is caught in a sandstorm. After the sandstorm, Princess Jasmine finds that the Capital of Agrabah had vanished. With the help of the Oracle, Princess Jasmine leaves the realm to the Land of Untold Stories to find Aladdin. ("Strange Case", "Street Rats", "Dark Waters")
