His grandmother (mothers mother) is not related to Sheikha Fatima.
I have not seen many pictures of Sheikh Zayed with Sheikh Mohammed's youngsters (Sheikh Mohammed would only have one son who would be at the age who would hang out with him but is slightly older). Also I would expect if Sheikh Zayed was brought up with Sheikh Mohammed you would see him more with the Sheikh but you don't, you only see him around Eid time with other Sheikhs.

At sport events, a lot of the male members are attending and tend to sit altogether, therefore iMO, it does not really mean that one is close or living with the other.

I am sure there is a logical explanation about Sh. Zayed bin Mansour but what I find weird is that there are all these pictures of Sh. Mansour with his 2 younger kids and barely any with Zayed. For example, when his football teams won this season, he held these celebrations and only the 2 younger kids were there. It almost seems as if he is more of a father to them than to his older son. I know it is harsh but this is what it looks like to me.

True but I would rather take second thoughts and wonder if Sheikh Zayed is in town? Is he at boarding school? Exams are taking place in many schools these days, like many parents wot take their kids out during exam days/week. COuld it be it was his day to spend with his mother?

Sure, he might be away but this is only one example. There are just so many pictures of Sh. Mansour with Fatima and Mohammed and barely any with Zayed. Plus, I read somewhere that Sh. Zayed from a very early age has been living with his grandfather as opposed to living with his mom and dad. So I always thought that Sh. Mansour is a very unusual parent but seeing how he treats his kids now, it shows that he can be a 'normal' dad. Don't get me wrong, I really like Sh. Mansour. If anything, he is my favorite from the Al Nahyans and looks like a really nice guy but it is just very surprising that he seems to treat his kids so differently. From what I know, he and Zayed's mother are separated (this is like being divorced but not officially, right?) so there might be some resentment there. However, under no circumstances should this be reflecting on Zayed. It is kind of the only dark side to an otherwise really nice guy :)

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed is said to be a very friendly and nice guy {edit} I dont want to go into details but i was shocked when i read the news today.He was off vacationing in Seychelles with his brothers, leaving his pregnant wife all alone. She was almost 9 months pregnant when he left. I even heard he was not by her side when she gave birth to his son! He came back from Seychelles today. His wife gave birth 6 days ago.I feel sooo sorry for Sheikha Manal. It must be horrible being married to a man like him. I dont understand why Sheikh Mohammed\'s first daughter, a Sheikha, educated with a master\'s dergree would marry this guy becoming his THIRD wife! http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayA...T-LEN-FullNews

WOOOOW!!! I can't believe he did this, Haywan!!! What's with this guy? I can't open the link {edit}. I always thought that he was unkind to his first son because he has some kind of resentment to his mom but I really believed that he loves sheikha Manal and the 2 kids they have together. Well, on the bright side, at least he wasn't vacationing with another woman! And what do you mean his 3rd wife? I thought she was the second one.

Haywan, I just managed to open the article and I think you got confused. He went for an official visit not a vacation and this was on June 1st. This means he was back in time for the birth of his son as there were pictures of him at his daughter's bday which was like 6th of 9th of June.

789 I know alot about the Al Nahyan family, especially Sheikh Zayeds sons! A girl I know is the mistress/girlfriend of one of Sheikh Mansours brothers. She has been with him for 3 years now. She knows all of them including Sheikh Mansour, knows everything about their lives, travels with them everywhere...and she talks ALOT! She tells everyone everything! Trust me, none of these Sheikhs are faithful to their wives! Most of them dont even love their wives. They are in love their girlfriends/mistresses. Their wives know about this, but they dont care! Its more like they cant do anything about it. They dont talk about it because they are ashamed and fear for their reputation. Just because you see pictures of people smiling with their children, doesnt mean they are happily married!You dont want to know what these Sheikhs do on their spare time. They live filthy disgusting lives! I dont want to say more on a public forum, but i genuinely feel sorry for their wives. I dont know how they can put up with these men!Ohh Sheikh Mansour did go to Seychelles with his brothers on a vacation. He left on June 1st, came back on the 27th. The Al Nahyans own a huge palace in the Seychelles. It was not an official visit, it was a private visit, meaning they were vacationing. How do you know he was not with another woman? Sheikhs dont vacation without female company! You are telling me a bunch of billionaire sheikhs went to Seychelles all alone to swim with the dolphins for 3 weeks? Here u go...here is a video on June 27th when Sheikh Mansour came back from Seychelles. He was on the news..u can clearly see him at 01:32 and 02:58...he is third guy in line behind Sheikh Khalifa all happy and smiling...ENJOY! أخبار الإمارات: 27/06/2011 - Akhbar El Emarat: Video on Demand - Dubai Media

</p> Soon after Sheikh Mansour graduated college from the States, he came back to the UAE and was married off to Alia in an arranged marriage. He was 23, she was a teenager, i think 16 or something. Alia is a relative from his mothers side. They had a baby right away, Sheikh Zayed bin Mansour. Sheikh Mansour and Alia had a rocky relationship. She could not put up with his playboy lifestyle. He was also in love with another woman, and his wife knew about this and she suffered alot because of this.Sheikh Mansour married again in 2002 or 2003 to Shaima Al Qasimi, the daughter of the ruler of Sharjah in an arranged marriage. Again rocky relationship. They had no children, so he divorced her.In 2004 or 2005 he married Sheikha Manal bint Mohammed Al Maktoum. She was in her late 20s. The Al Nahyans generally dont like the Al Maktoums, but back in 2004 Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum was making a name for himself for what he was doing with Dubai. Arabs thought Dubai was going to become another New York or something. Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum became a billionaire..so the Al Nahyans started to respect him more. So this marriage brought the two powerful families together and solidified their relationship. In the Gulf people dont marry for love, they marry for family connections/relations, power and wealth. Thus Sheikha Manal is Sheikh Mansours third wife! They have 3 children, Sheikha Fatima, Sheikh Mohammed and Sheikh Hamdan!

No quite correct.

Sheikh Zayeds mother (Sheikh Mansour's father) is a relative of the Al-Butti Hamad family, that way they are a very distant relatives to Sheikh Zayed through his mother.

Sheikh Manosur's mother has no bloodline to the Al-Hamad or Al-Nahyan family only through marriage.

Haywan this is unbelievable! Sh. Mansour is a playboy????? How is it possible that a guy everyone says is really nice is such womanizer! Imagine! He has always been my favorite form the Al Nahyans and I always thought that Manal had the best arranged marriage from Sh. Mohammed's children. But then again, I thought it was weird how he built that great body and how now there are so many sleeveless pictures of him. I should have known that a man who does this in his 40s and whose wife isn't being photographed and stays at home with the kids is up to no good.
Someone had mentioned previously that he married another girl before Manal and that the girl wasn't pretty. However, it was never confirmed so I guess now we know for sure.
It is not like I do not know what the reality with these sheikhs is. It is just that I always thought he was a bit different and I wouldn't have picked him for a womanizer. Same with Sh. Mohammed bin Zayed.
I have so many questions to ask you but I am not sure if the admin will allow me to so I might send you a private msg! Thanks for sharing!!

Oh and I saw the video! He really is all smiles! The guy apparently had a good time (with or without another woman) while his wife was giving birth. And you know what I find most weird? That Sh. Mohammed is there greeting him and giving him a kiss. Not that he is in a position to say anything as he has god knows how many children from god knows how many women, but it must be painful when someone does this to you first born.

Sheikh Manosur and Sheikha Manals marriage was not an arranged one. Apparently Sheikh Manosur wanted Manla for quite sometime before his family actually agreed for it.

Hi Dazzling! Well, this is what someone else was stating earlier but Haywan said that he married her because her dad became more prominent. This doesn't scream love to me. Plus, if he had been in love with her and married her for who she is and not for who her dad is, he probably wouldn't be taking her for granted now.

Since there is mixed information and nobody would really know the truth behind it, we can believe what we want from what we read

Word is that she fascinates him a lot..Perhaps her being an artist of some skill is a part of that. Sheikh Mansour is something of a symbolist despite being a very good financial brain.
As for him being a playboy. Sheikh Mo bin Zayed is a harsh master in many ways and would not tolerate any of his brothers slacking and neither would their mum I think, and shes still formidable..

Abu Dhabi Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan has inscribed what is in effect the biggest graffiti tag the world has ever seen. Hamad, 63, a scion of the billionaire Abu Dhabi royal family, has gouged his name in capital letters two miles across and half a mile wide.

You mean Sheikh Sultan's first wife is not from UAE, then where is she from?
