The Hashemites
 
This thread is to discuss the Hashemite dynasty, starting from HAshim ibn Abd al-Manaf, the founder of the dynasty, to King Talal I, father of King Hussein II and grandfather of the current King.

Here is the brief introduction to the Hashemite dynasty:

The Hashemites trace their ancestry from Hashim ibn Abd al-Manaf, the great-grandfather of Prophet Muhammad, from who the dynasty name comes. It is also believed the dynasty is descendant from Fatima, the Prophetís daughter. The struggle between Hashemites and rival dynasty Umayyads eventually led to the religious split between Sunni and Shia.

After the collapse of the Ottoman power, Hussein bin Ali of the Hashemite dynasty rules and independent Hejaz. His rival, Ibn Saud, annexed Hejaz and named his own son, Faysal bin Abdelaziz al Saud as governor. The region was later incorporated into Saudi Arabia.

Of Husseinís 5 sons, the eldest, Ali, briefly succeeded to the Throne of Hejaz, before it was annexed to the Saud Family. His second son, Abdullah later became King of Transjordan, and whose descendants established the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Husseinís third son, Faisal, was briefly King of Syria, before becoming King of Iraq. Husseinís fourth son, Prince Zeid, became claimant to the Throne of Iraq, when his brotherís grandson was overthrown and murdered in 1958. Prince Hassan died at a young age.

The rule of Hashemite dynasty in Iraq ended after 1958 revolution, however the dynasty continues to successfully rule in Jordan.

Isn't there a thread on this somewhere?

We have Hashemite Dynasty thread in the Royal Geneology Forum, which is focused on the geneology of the family.
This thread is for general discussion of the Dynasty. :smile:

King Hussein was very popular but he was king for 46 years. The only other two kings before him were reigning for 2 years before assassination and 1 year before being sent to a mental health institution so really I am not surprised about your statment of hussein being the most popular and abdullah doesn't match up to his father in many people's eyes. Rania definitely needs to spend much more time in Jordan doing things that actually makes a difference and to stop the top down attitude of knowing what is best. There are many educated people in Jordan but if you aren't a favourite then you don't get heard.

King Abdullah I may have been king for only 2 or 3 years, but since 1923 he was the Emir of (then) Transjordan.

Yes but let's be honest the royal house of Jordan is a British invention and the Hashemites aren't even Jordanian but from the Hejaz.

Veram98 12-13-2008 06:07 PM

Yes, (Trans-)Jordan was created by the British Empire. Almost all the borders in the Middle East were "created" by Britain (and France).
But nowadays the Arabs living there (in former Trans-Jordan) see themselves first as Jordanians than as Arabs (at least the East Bankers) and have more or less accepted being ruled by the Hashemites (from Mecca).

yamamah 12-13-2008 06:09 PM

But there are more West Bankers there now and things aren't as settled internally.

Veram98 12-13-2008 06:18 PM

There are (many) problems between East and West Bankers and they cannot be resolved before the Palestinian problem as a whole will find a just solution. But even for the Palestinians in Jordan (who still do not know if they will stay for ever there or return to the other side of the Jordan river one day) there is no credible alternative to the actual regime.

The aspirations of the people to govern themselves have never been fostered but let's do this via pm OK?

That is unfortunately the standard not the exception in the Middle East.

Actually 1921 not 1923

Veram98 12-15-2008 07:04 AM

Yes, but only in May 1923 Transjordan was granted by the British a certain degree of formal independence with Abdullah as ruler in an official announcement.
