Excellent website of Al-Qu'aiti Sultanate Dynasty - Al Qu'aiti Royal Family
The Qu'aiti website gives you a window in to the former Sultanate, its history, family dynasty, photos of family Sultans and Sultanate.
I also read a couple of articles recently, and two interviews with a Sultan and a Sheikh, regarding the return of some Sultans and Sheikhs to their former ancestoral homes in Yemen, since the unification of the North and South.
Two of the returned Sultans are in the former Sultanates of Shihr & Mukalla, and Lahej.
Many of the Sultans larger Palaces are now State museums and Government buildings, but other family houses, properties, and some land estates have returned to the Sultans & Sheikhs families in restitution agreements.
The return of those Sultans to Yemen in the 1990s was greated by large enthusiastic and emotional cheering crowds!
