all muslims men in muslims states can easily have another wife,cause all the laws in all arabic/muslims states allow it(exept Tunisia and Morocco)
so if King Abdulah decide/want to have others wives will be so easy to him,however i hardly,hardly think he will for some reasons:he have beautiful/elegant wife(who have big power in Jordan I don't think she will let it happen easily),have onather wife will not do any favors for the image of modern king/country he want to give so i don't think he will tak that risk.

The practice of polygamy is rare in Jordan (and seems to be concentrated in the rural areas as opposed to the urbanized cities).The last Jordanian royal who had more than one wife (at the same time) was King Abdullah I (died in 1951).

Muslim men can marry upto 4 women however there are strict conditions.

Firstly they must have the agreement of their first wife, if she does not agree a second marriage cannot take place. The same applies if there is more than one wife.

Secondly they may only do so on the basis that they can provide equally for all wives.

Thirdly the provision is only supposed to be used at times where there are many unmarried women. For example during early Islam there were many widows so the Prophet recommended multiple marriages because these women would then be free from abuse, exploitation etc.

not necessary Little_star even if in some laws they said so,if the man really want a second wife and the first one didn't agree the marriage take place no matter what,so the agreement of first wife is more moral than legal requirement that disrupt the second marriage.
as law woman i know what i am talking about here,I sudied law and I know about it in all arab countries.

Queen Rania's height is estimated from 5'5" (165 cm) to 5'9" (175 cm). Personally I think that 5'9" is way too tall, the more realistic figure is probably 5'6".


I have a question concerning the Line of Succession. I know there isn't one in Jordan as such and the Crown Prince can be chosen by the King among his sons or brothers. I also know that currently there is no Crown Prince in Jordan, although it is widely expected that the King will appoint his eldest son any day now. However, if something were to happen to King Abdullah before he appoints his heir, how the new Monarch would be chosen? Would Abdullah's brothers be favoured because both his sons are minors? Or would one (or more) of his brothers be appointed Regent until Hussein is of age?

I guess if King Abdullah died tomorrow, his son would be immediately king, however an elder brother would be regent til he gets of age (Prince Feisal probably). However Wikipedia has an article about the "Line of Sucession to The Jordanian Throne" Line of succession to the Jordanian throne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From what I understand Prince Hussein is the Crown Prince, he just hasn't been publicly declared the CP.

Thank you White Princessa and Little_star.
Since King Abdullah's eldest son is already his Heir in accordance with agnatic primogeniture, he doesn't have to name the Crown Prince at all, unless he wishes his younger son or one of his brothers/nephews to succeed him, which personally I find very unlikely.

He had a French nanny for a while as a boy. I heard that he understands French rather well, but is not very fluent in speaking the language himself.
