No the prince who died was Sheikh Rashid bin Maktoum (son of the present ruler of Dubai: Sheikh Maktoum) in a car crash a few years ago.

Does anyone know (about) how many kids Sheikh Zayed, the President, has? How young are his younger children--adolescents, teenagers, in their 20s, etc? Or how many wives he has had and currently has?

I think Baba Zayed has 33 sons. How many daughters he has, I don&#39;t know. Fatima bin Mubarak, who is his fav wife and considered the First Lady, is his fifth wife with whom he had 9 kids.

But that did not stop him from "acquiring" more wives unlike his neighbour the late ruler of Dubai Sheikh Rashid who stuck to his beloved Latifa as Layla mentioned his entire life. I read that Sheikh Zayed had 14 wives in a book that I read, from the late 70&#39;s.

I think some of his children are as young as in their 20&#39;s (Baba Zayed is 86).

How old is Sheikh Hazza?

There is a photo that hangs in many shops of Dubai with all the sons of Shk Zayed. There is a alot of them. I&#39;ve heard rumors of close to a hundred kids (male and female). But you never know.

I don&#39;t know the age of Shk Hazza but he looks to be in his 30&#39;s.

Also regarding the Maktoums. People in the Dubai always talk about Shk Rashid was a nice man & good business man and he had one wife he loved and was a dedicated father. This is why the kids are such excellent business men and leaders today. Whereas the current crop of sheiks (Mo-ness and brothers), have nannies raising their kids and disposable wives. Generally EVERYONE I met in the Emirates thought Shk Rashid was a visionary and a saint. His kids are considered professionally quite astute but not nearly as desireable personally. I read an interview with Shk Mo where he responded to a question about the similarities between him and his father. He said they both &#39;had beards&#39;. I thought this was a disrespectful and flippant answer.

Sheikh Rashid was a visionary and he laid the whole infrastructure of Dubai all those years ago. What his children did was build on that. I heard from an Indian doctor in Dubai that when he started working in a public hospital in Dubai, he was visited by a "local" at 7 a.m. sharp. The "local" stopped his car at the entrance, and doctor (who happened to be passing by) told him off&#33; He told him this is a hospital and you are not allowed to park here. All of a sudden, everyone came storming out of the hospital telling the doctor off, because the local was none other than Rashid himself. The doc said he was so petrified that he started packing his stuff etc. The next day, he got called by his boss and thinking the worst, he took his resignation letter with him. He said not only was he not reprimanded but he was given a raise because of his dedication&#33;

When Sheikh Rashid passed away, a one minute silence was announced at the UN. That is quite something especially for a small sheikhdom.

I once read a book about the Shah, and it said that the only Sheikh the Shah treated with respect was Sheikh Rashid. Apparently with the others he had a very condescending attitude (which is not nice at all). He was quoted as saying that "you cannot but respect Sheikh Rashid".

La la & pallas athina: Hamdan is Fatima&#39;s son. I don&#39;t know how many kids Sheikh Zayed has in total but as silver charm mentioned, there is a picture of him with all his sons. Let&#39;s just say that the picture is landscape and not portrait . I can&#39;t find the picture online.

Zayed&#39;s last wife is from the prominent Kitbi tribe and some of her sons are Mansour, Saeed, Saif and.... forgot the last one.

I have read in the Western press that Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid is the defacto ruler of Dubai. Given the power structure, how likely is it that one day one of his sons will become ruler? If so, which one is currently leading the running?

He is the defacto ruler. However I think the next in line is Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum (the current ruler&#39;s son) and not SMo&#39;s kids.

If one of Mo-ness sons will rule the sheikhdom, I think it will be Hamdan.

I think Hamdan is his favourite. Some years back, Sheikh Mohammed had a link to a beautiful poem written by Hamdan bin Mohammed and there is also a poem by Sheikh Mohammed &#39;Oh victorious arrow&#39; dedicated to his son Hamdan (so cute). He has brilliant equestrian skills and is also the Chairman of the Board of the Establishment for Young Business Leaders. He makes his parents proud&#33;

I thought the same. In a lot of the pictures on WAM in recent months, it&#39;s been Hamdan attending events with Sheikh Mohammed. If Rashid were there, I&#39;d think they&#39;d show him too.

Is there any homepage similar to WAP and/or elaph in English as I can not read Arabic?

What about Sh Mohammed&#39;s younger brother Sh Ahmed who is also &#39;officially&#39; single? The one who sleeps in a giant remote-controlled bed placed amid three small islands that he vascillates/oscillates to and fro, in his bedroom? Is he also married to a non-Emirati?

Bubette: I doubt very much it&#39;s a love marriage. The Sheikh is VERY powerful in Abu Dhabi (not to mention loaded). That should overcome the looks .

La la: will look for some pages in English. As to Sheikh Ahmed bin Rashid.... he keeps a very low profile and does not get involved in politics. As to his remote control bed etc. that is new to me. He has a beautiful palace in black marble on the beach. He&#39;s very loyal to his friends too and has built them all villas (quite fancy ones) right beside his palace. That&#39;s the limit of my information.
