The Qasimi Ruling Family of Ras al-Khaimah is a junior branch of the Ruling Family of Sharjah. There were various separations and re-incorporations of the territories from about 1808 onwards, but since 1921 Ras al-Khaimah has been treated as independent.

Ras al-Khaimah
Former Ruler: HH Shaikh Saqr Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi (born 1918, Ruler 1948 until his death in 2010)
New Ruler (former Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler): HH Shaikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi (son of Saqr, Crown Prince since 2003 and effective Ruler of RAK)

There was for a period a third Al Qasimi Emirate: Kalbã
This city achieved defacto independence from Sharjah in 1903 and after having three ruling Al Qasimi Sheihks was reincorpoarted into Sharjah in 1952.

~~~~~~

Sharjah and RAK are under the one heading here in the Forums because they share a dynasty and our focus is more dynastic than national. At this early stage of the new UAE Forum there's not enough information or material available to make them two stand-alone threads, but hopefully over time this will change. The emergence of Dubai and Abu Dhabi as significant international centres may help to raise the profile of, and interest in, the other Emirates.

ETA...
the RAK and Sharjah thread has since been split so each Emirate has its own thread.

Al Qasimi intermarriage


This looks like a second-cousin marriage within the Al Qasimi dynasty linking together two branches:
Sheikh Mohammed bin Jassem Bin Humaid Bin Mohammed to Sheikha xxx bint Talib Bin Saqar Bin Mohammed,
or
Mohammed > Humaid > Jassem > Mohammed
Mohammed > Saqar > Talib > bride

I assume it is due to alternatrive or elastic spelling but the bride's father Talib bin Saqar may well be a son of the current Ruler of RAK, Sheikh Saqr.
The WAM article uses both spellings so Saqr-Saqar may be different people. Or not.
However, as Sheikh Talib has the important post of Director General of the RAK Police, it's more likely that he is indeed the Ruler's son.

Yes he is.
No I think who died was his brother. His son from his second wife is the crown prince, Sheikh Saoud bin Saqer.
