Yesterday I read some newspaper and there was a picture of a Lebanese freedom fighter( they were writing about the revolutions unfurling in so many Arabic countries,the cry for democracy and if the fights and demonstrations had changed the Islamic world) and he looked so much like Sheikh Majid! I really thought it was his brother or some relative *lol* They had almost the same figure,hair,very similiar shape of nose and eyes (did you notice that he has a much different nose than the rest of his brothers?I can´t describe it in English but when you look at the pictures you´ll see!) So now I am even more curious about the mysterious lady who had brought him up! Obviously most of you are sure he is of half Maroccan-descent...? Some of you state that they have good sources (which I doubt at some times,because why would you then want to "coffeklatsch" with us,who can only guess or imagine?) but maybe you could tell us if you know 100% sure that she is from Marocco, not half Libanese like Shakira or maybe even from a country that hasn´t been named? I imagine that she must be some actress,model,dancer or singer or something artistic- maybe that´s why Majid was chosen for culture & art because otherwise I don´t think he is qualified in any way as he never visited a school/uni with an emphasize on art/design/culture! Nor did I see any drawings,pictures or other art works made by him which doesn´t say that he may not be interested in art for art´s sake -I just hope he knows a little bit about art and the history of art but I can only guess.To me it would rather seem natural if Hamdan would represent the art sector as he writes,makes nice photographs and maybe does all kind of other stuff too which we don´t know?Or Latifa as she is working as an artist and already had a few exhibitions...But I forgot that only males are capable of fulfilling any official duty,I am so sorry, I´m a woman, so please help me to think and write*lol*
It´s really sad to see that Sheikh Mohamed talks an awful lot about female empowerment but none of his daughters got a significant post or job-even if they would just get the chance to do an internship!-(I am thinking about ministry of finance,foreign office,interior ministry etc.)
It´s all the same wheter you are in Europe,US or Arab countries- emancipation is only good for speeches but you have to hustle and fight if you want some of it!
The only good examples in the Muslim world that come to my mind are Queen Rania (Jordan seems like a good country for strong women like Q Noor,Q Alia,Princess Muna al-Hussein (Toni Gardiner)& many others), Sheikha Moza from Quatar or Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid bin Sultan al Qasimi (Dubai!) who has quite an impressive CV (higher education and top governmental positions included)....
If you know any daughter who is working in the government ( I mean WORKING,not just making some publicity stunts/pictures/nice speeches etc.) please correct me

@blauerengel: Oh how I love to read your post. Pretty amusing. Well Sh. Mansour has a different nose as well so guess their noses come from the mothers side as for me Maitha doesn't look like her half-sister at all.
yeah I've heard that about the famous moroccan-beauty as well. :) (but I've never heard that russian women are claimes a pretty in europe lol only as spoiled, rich and fur-lovers )
Btw some of the ppl here are living in dubai so I guess they hear or know things that we from europe don't hear. And women in dubai love to gossip.
Well I guess being the chairman of the art& culture government doesn't have much to do with being an artist himself but more with having good ideas to support the art& culture scene. Hamdan already has as being the crown prince already a lot of work while Lateefa is a mom I guess and also busy with Tashkeel and making her art. Btw. there are a lot of women working in the government but not as chairwomen but kinda like "behind the curtains".
And Manal bint Mohammed is the president of the dubai women establishment and she also has a quite impressive CV as holding a bachelors degree in interior design and Master in marketing.
Most of Moh's daugther are still young, haven't even attended university yet so they may have a high position in a few years. (even though I doubt that as some of them aren't very in education just as Maryam) but most of the older daughters attended university which is a good step IMO.

Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum Official Children

Hi Everyone,

I live in the UAE and hold very high respect for the Ruling Family. Due to a longstanding interest about the family, I decided to do some thorough research and then share it with other people like me. My reply is pretty broad, but does specifically concern the children of Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sheikh Mohammed's first wife is a Lebanese woman named Delila Aloula. With Delila, Sheikh Mohammed has four daughters.

Sheikha Manal (born 12 November 1979)- Married to Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan with 3 Kids (Sheikha Fatima, Sheikh Mohammed & Sheikh Hamdan), and the President of Dubai Women's Establishment & a Patron of the Arts. Sheikha Manal attended Latifa School For Girls (for primary education) and American University of Dubai (BA Interior Designing & MBA Marketing). Sheikha Manal is Sheikh Mansour's second wife (he is married/estranged to Alia Bint Mohammed Al Hamad with one son born in 1993/4- Sheikh Zayed), who is more famously known for being the owner of Manchester City FC and is the Deputy Vice President of the UAE. They reside in Dubai.

Sheikha Latifa (born 1983)- is the Vice President of Dubai Art & Culture Authority & is unmarried. Sheikha Latifa attended Latifa School For Girls (Primary Education), and Zayed University (BA Marketing & EMBA). She is the Honorary President of the Graduates Association of Zayed University & is known by the nickname 7ayaty.

Sheikha Maha (born 1988) is the third daughter of Delila & Sheikh Mohammed. She attended Latifa School For Girls (Primary Education) & Zayed University (BA) and is currently living in Dubai with her sister Latifa.

Sheikha Maryam (born 1989) is the fourth and final daughter of Sheikh Mohammed & Delila. She attended Latifa School For Girls (Primary Education) and recently graduated from Zayed University, giving the speech at the Graduation Ceremony. She lives in Dubai with her two older sisters.

The children of Delila Aloula share a pleasant relationship with the children of the Moroccan Lady, whereas Manal shares a good relationship with all the children largely due to being the eldest (which is a position of respect according to Bedouin tradition). Sheikha Maha is the only child out of these four who isn't publicly acknowledged by Sheikh Mohammed (due to unknown reasons). Sheikha Manal (according to speculation) was for unknown reasons raised by her aunt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheikh Mohammed's Second/Third wife is a Moroccan lady with whom he has 4 children, 2 Girls and 2 Boys.

Sheikha Maitha (born 1980) is the eldest out of the four children. She attended Latifa School For Girls for primary education. She is one of the most famously known children of Sheikh Mohammed- getting herself a spot on the Forbe's Hottest Young Royals List. Sheikha Maitha is a Taekwondo Athlete, and Captain of the National Team, participating in event's locally, and internationally (Olympics). She was recently made the President of the World Karate Federation's Athletes Commission, being the first Woman of Arab Descent to do so. She remains unmarried.

Sheikha Shamsa (born 1981) is the second daughter, most prominently known for the famous runaway scandal which appeared in many British Newspapers. She attended Latifa School For Girls (primary education) and University of Cambridge (BA). She was embroiled in a scandal when she tried to runaway from her family, largely due to family problems and the lack of freedom she had. No news has come of her since the scandal in 2000, and she has apparently been married (to a non royal) and is living in Dubai. Only one known picture of hers has been published, that of her Childhood- posted by Sheikha Maitha on her twitter account.

Sheikh Majed (born 1987) is the first son, and is the President of Dubai Art & Culture Authority. He attended Rashid School For Boys and recieved Military Training in Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
He lives in Za'abeel Palace with Sheikh Mohammed. He is unmarried.

Sheikh Mansour (born 1989) is the youngest of the four and has attended Rashid School For Boys and trained in Sandhurst. He is the President of Al Shabab Football Club.

Sheikh Mohammed has four children with his second wife. His two sons from this wife have been raised by his official wife, Sheikha Hind. These children share a pleasant relationship with both Delila's children and Sheikha Hind's. However, it was reported that these four children live separately in the United Kingdom property owned by their father. No news following 2001 has been reported of Sheikha Shamsa and she is not generally included with the other children (even from the moroccan wife).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sheikh Mohammed's Official Wife & most prominent and highly respected in the UAE and Arab World is Sheikha Hind Bint Maktoum Bin Jumaa Al Maktoum- his first cousin (born in 1962). They live in Za'abeel Palace with their 12 Children, including the Crown Prince of Dubai.


Sheikha Hessa (born 1980) is the eldest child of the couple. She attended Latifa School For Girls and Zayed University. She is the Patron for UAE Therapy Horse Riding and her pet recently won an award in the Pedigree Dog Show in Dubai. Sheikha Hessa has only been photographed publicly close to 4 times- most of those pics being of her childhood. Sheikha Hessa is married to Sheikh Saeed Bin Dalmouk Al Maktoum- her first cousin, and the couple have a daughter- Sheikha Hind bint Saeed Al Maktoum (born 2009). The couple reside in Dubai.

Sheikh Rashid (born 1981) is the eldest son of the couple. He attended Rashid School for Boys and Sandhurst for Training. He is the President of the UAE National Olympic Committee, and holds a public role in Dubai. Sheikh Rashid is unmarried (though there were rumors of a girlfriend). He is a high ranking Endurance Horse Rider and was the Gold Medalist in the Asiad 2006. He is the owner of Za'abeel Racing Corp. a premier brand in Horse Riding globally.

Sheikh Hamdan (born 1982) is the Crown Prince of Dubai. He attended Rashid School For Boys, Sandhurst, and specialized courses at London School of Economics and Dubai School of Government. Sheikh Hamdan is the President of Hamdan E-University, Dubai Autism Center, and Dubai Executive Council. He is also a published poet and Endurance Rider.

Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum Official Children (2)

Hey Everyone,

I would like to continue the post on official children, and then I will elaborate further later.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheikh Mohammed's Fourth (and most Prominent) wife is Princess Haya of Jordan aka Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein. She is the half-sister of the current King of Jordan.

She is the President of FEI, as well as being the patron of several charities in both Jordan and UAE as well as being a UN Messenger of Peace. She recieved her education in Jordan and the UK, and qualified as a Show Jumping Equestrian in the Sydney Olympics.

The couple met at Jerez De La Fontenera in Spain, where both were competing in races. After a 2 year long courtship, the couple got married in Amman in 2004 in the presence of close family.

Sheikha Al Jalila (born 2007) is the youngest of Sheikh Mohammed's children, and is four years old. She shares her name with her cousin, Princess Jalila Ali.

The marriage of the couple was very scandalous for Dubai, largely due to the fact that the Ruler already had a highly respected wife who is also his cousin, and due to the Westernized and Modern lifestyle of Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein. Immediately after the marriage Princess Haya was rejected by both Sheikh Mohammed's Family and Dubai. Rumors have it that many people would back-talk and crack jokes at her expense, many of whom were punished by her husband. The effect of the marriage on his family was bad, with Sheikh Rashid refusing to accept Princess Haya, and Sheikh Hind being shocked with the marriage, and Sheikha Latifa even dropping out of school. However, after the birth of Sheikha Al Jalila, the situation has improved.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sheikh Mohammed was married in 1993 to Zoe Grigorakos, a Greek lady, soon dissolving the marriage. The couple have one daughter.

Sheikha Mahra (born 1993) previously known as Sheikha Christianna and Amanda Wufka Grigorakos is the only daughter of the couple. She recieved her early education in Greece, only recently moving to the UAE, where she attended Latifa School For Girls. She took part in the horse race for the Pink Caravan and has attended a few events for her father. She is an award winning Endurance Equestrian.

Sheikha Mahra was raised as a Christian, largely because of her growing up in Greece. Only recently has she moved to Dubai, converted to Islam and taken up an arabic name. She generally doesn't get along with her other siblings (from Sheikha Hind)- sharing cold vibes at the recent endurance race, speaking only to Futtaim. She shares a cordial, if not pleasant relationship with her other siblings from Delila.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheikh Mohammed was previously married to a German Model, having one child, and the marriage was soon dissolved. They have one son.

Sheikh Marwan (born 1981) is the eldest son of Sheikh Mohammed. He attended Rashid School For Boys in Dubai, and is a prominent businessman in Dubai. He is married to a non-royal and has one daughter, Sheikha Mozah.

Sheikh Marwan, for unknown reasons was raised by Sheikha Hind in Za'abeel Palace, though he keeps a low profile and rarely appears at public events.

Thank you, Lalla Suhana! It's very interesting!

So Sheikh Mohammed's marriages to mothers of Marwan & Mahra were so-called "temporary marriages" , as I supposed...

well that was useful summary ... I think Mahra 's issue is a girly thing ; may be they are jealous cause she considered the most attractive and she is into spotlight so quickly .

Is the Morroccan lady not living in Dubai as the her boys are raised by shaikha hind? And do you know if they all still live in za'abeel?

The Boys all live in Za'abeel Palace, thats confirmed. They usually move out when they get married. So far, Marwan is the only son which is married with a daughter. The girls are usually raised by their mothers. Shamsa's whereabouts are unknown, but I believe that she's probably living in Dubai (maybe married), and Maitha probably lives with her mother, as she's unmarried.
