Former Monarchies of Aden, Yemen and the Southern Arabian Sultanates
 
Do any Forum members want to start new thread sections on non-Reigning Royals of Yemen (Imanate/Kingdom), and Sultanates, Sheikhdoms & Emirates of South Yemen and former Aden Protectorate & Federation of Southern Arabia - Lahej, Shihr & Mukalla, Fadhli, Yafa'i, Beihan, Dhala, Sha'ib, Hadhrami, Kathiri, Mahri Quishn & Socotra, Birati, etc.?
These are very interesting Royal Houses, and some have excellent websites like the Quait'i Sultanate of Hadhramaut (Shihr &Mukalla).
I hope others may be interested too.

The last King of Yemen at the time of the Royalist/Republican War in 1962 was King Muhammad al-Badr, who was the son of King Ahmed Hamidaddin (1948-62).
HM King Muhammad al-Badr Hamidaddin (Hameed al-Deen) led the Royalist forces from North Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
He went into exile in Saudi Arabia, and then Britain with his family. He died in 1996.
His son and Heir is HRH Crown Prince Ageel bin Muhammad Al-Badr Hamidaddin (born 1974). Crown Prince Ageel's son & Heir is HRH Prince Muhammad Al-Hassan bin Ageel.
I hope this is helpful to start Yemen Kingdom forum.
The Sultanates, Sheikhdoms, & Emirates of Southern Arabia (Aden Protectorate & South Yemen) are equally interesting!

I'm not an expert in this subject or up-to-date on situation re Monarchy restoration in Yemen, but from much that ive read on the history of North Yemens Royalist/Republican civil war from 1962, and the many tribal clan rivalries in the now united North &South Yemen, post-Sallah Presidency &Republics unrest, plus new Islamic extremist eliments & security situation ongoing, i think any National movement or unified feeling for the return of the Monarchy most unlikely myself.
If the situation in Yemen settles and stabilizes with some sort of democratic or coalition Government of National unity, then maybe a return of the Royal family as private citizens is as possible as has happened in Afghanistan and some East European Balkan Republics.
It is worth pointing out too that unlike the original North Yemen Imanate & Kingdom, the Republic of Yemen now includes the former North & South Yemens. South Yemen was a Marxist State that took over the former Sultanates,Sheikhdoms,Emirates of Aden Protectorate & Federation of South Arabia,in 1967. Therefore these regions (Aden,Hadhramaut,etc) have there own tribal loyalties and divisions, and Royal Houses and histories.

The last i read through The Monarchist League and other Royalty websites was that HRH Crown Prince Ageel bin Muhammad Al-Badr Hamidaddin of Yemen was active as a spokesman for the Royal Family and on Yemens situation since the death of his father HM King Muhammad Al-Badr in 1996.
Ive not yet found anything up to date since the recent civil unrest and anti-Salih protests. I think the Royal family are still in Britain, but previously they were in exile in Saudi Arabia. Al Jazeera News archives website may possibly be worth a try as a source of information or any recent quotes or interviews.
Al Jazeera News covered the Libyan Sanussi Royal Heir during the Libyan recent uprising, and BBC News covered the Iraqi Hashemite Royal claimants during Iraqi elections etc.
Other smaller Yemeni Sultanates of former Aden Protectorate & South Arabia are living in Yemen (South Yemen regions) and many are active within their own Tribal communities and former capitals & ancestoral homelands of old Sultanates,Sheikhdoms,Emirates.
Some Royal websites cover the North Yemeni Hamidaddin Royal Family.
