Why are there so many Saudi Princes and Princess'? What kind of system is in place that allows such an influx of people allowed to call themselves a Prince?

This topic has been discussed here.

According to "The Kingdom: Arabia and the House of Sa'ud" by Robert Lacey, "Male members of the House of Sa'ud are known as "emirs", and this is usually translated as prince." The House of Sa'ud includes all male-line descendants of Muhammad ibn Sa'ud, the tribal ruler of the Eighteenth Century who first adopted Wahhabi'ism, and not to Abdul Aziz ibn Sa'ud, the founder of the modern Kingdom of Sa'udi Arabia. So there are many thousands of princes of the royal house, mostly in positions of wealth and influence. However, so far as I know, the title is not for sale.
"Prince" was used in a similar manner in czarist Russia, although again this is a matter of translation, as discussed here. The title originally referred to any descendant of Prince Rurik, so there were many princes, as for example Prince Andrei in War and Peace. After the time of Peter the Great, however, it could also be granted by the czar like an English peerage. This "debasement", to my knowledge, has not happened in Sa'udi Arabia.

Saudi Gazette - Sultana, wife of Riyadh Emir, passes away
Princess Sultana Bint Turki Bin Ahmad Al-Sudairi, wife of Prince Salman Bin Abdul Aziz, Emir of Riyadh region, passed away on the eve of Ramadan due to a disease she was suffering from a long time. She was 71.

Kingdom mourns loss of philanthropist princess - Arab News

Princess Sultana had supported the Prince Fahd bin Salman Charitable Society for the Care of Kidney Patients and other charitable organizations in the country. She was known for her noble qualities and support for the poor and needy.

According to Khaled Al-Malik, editor in chief of Al-Jazirah Arabic daily, Prince Salman had loved Princess Sultana very much as they lived together several years. She had given birth to his sons Fahd, Ahmed, Abdul Aziz, Sultan and Faisal and daughter Hessa.

“Princess Sultana was his friend and life partner and they shared the same noble qualities of giving and helping others. He had beautiful memories of their life together,” Al-Malik wrote in the paper. He said Prince Salman was deeply shocked by the death of the princess, which came following the deaths of his sons Prince Fahd and Prince Ahmed.

Condolences were offered to Prince Salman, Prince Sultan bin Salman, chairman of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities, Prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman, deputy minister of petroleum and mineral resources, Prince Faisal bin Salman, chairman of SRMG [Saudi Research & Marketing Group], and Princess Hessa bint Salman as well as to the sons and daughters of Prince Fahd bin Salman and Prince Ahmed bin Salman.

Last summer, several Parisian shops claimed the profligate Princess owed them money for unpaid-for luxury goods, including $100,000 of lingerie at Aux Caprices de Lili, an intimates shop across from the George V hotel, where the Princess was staying. At the time, the store's owner lamented to The Times of London, "We feel that we are fighting alone against the second biggest fortune of Saudi Arabia.

plz just because you hear gossip doesnt make it true
LOL i saw that. What a shame: Not paying her bills on time, it's not like she doesnt have money
And, no it was not just Gossips! I remember, even the saudi ambassador refused to pay the bills for her, he said his job in France is not to pay others bills lol then finally her husband paid for her

PressTV - Princess accuses Riyadh of corruption
Saudi Princess Basma bint Saud has accused the Riyadh regime of corruption, saying a vast majority of the Persian Gulf country's population are living in poverty.
The princess, a niece of King Abdullah and a social activist and prominent supporter of women's rights in Saudi Arabia, has said that some 95 percent of the country live below the country's poverty-line and have no access to water and electricity.
This is while the remaining five percent enjoy the country's wealth.
She also accused Saudi officials of pocketing more than USD 21 billion that were supposed to be invested in order to expand the holy mosque in Mecca.

Saudi princess: We wrongfully intervened in Bahrain
Princess Basma daughter of Saud bin Abdul Aziz warned of western intervention that is trying to target the region and its natural resources and its Islamic history and identity.
She considered that international pressure will not affect the peoples’ revolutions.

Princess Basma Bint Saud Bin Abdul Aziz

The Acton princess leading the fight for Saudi freedom - News - People - The Independent
HRH Princess Basma Bint Saud Bin Abdul Aziz is one of the more unlikely critics of the élite that runs Saudi Arabia.
The oil state boasts a 15,000-strong royal family but it is rare for a voice from within its ranks to become part of the growing clamour for reform in the desert kingdom.
As the youngest daughter of the country's second king and niece to its current ruler, she is from the highest echelons of the Saudi monarchy.
Just as her privileged status gives her considerable authority in the debate about change, so this carefully dissenting royal has much to lose if her actions incur the displeasure of Saudi Arabia's ultra-conservative regime.

who's daughters are these?

Ok I recently came across Layann Al Saud who is pictured with the Jackson children and her mother is Princess Dalal Al Saud....who's is their father? I know that she has a sister. I am curious to know who the male Al Saud family member is they are supposed to be related to? Anyone know?


Here is a website I found and on their twitters it says their mother as being Princess Dalal....and its not the one Al Waleed was married too because this woman is British. Thanks

If he did, then she should start living with what she can spend.
