King Hussein: Picture Thread, Part 1
 
In an interview with Katie Couric months after KH's death, she has behind her a photo of KH she said she kept with her always. It was on her bedside table in AM and PM and she spoke to it.....I didn't catch interview but saw blurry image. Does anyone know or have a photo of this particular image of KH?

I've been meaning to ask this for awhile.....hope I didn't wait too long.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

I'm not familiar with with the interview that you are referring to, but in her memoirs she mentions two photos.... one which was taken the day that she first met the King on the tarmac at Amman International Airport (it was lost, so I don't think that was the one) and another, of King Hussien and Prince Hamzah as a little boy... that might be the one.... but I'm really not sure....

I'm not 100% sure but I saw a pic of him beside her bed in an interview with Barbara Walters. She said that she loved that picture. It's a picture of him smiling.

I'm pretty sure it was this one.

I don't have the tape of the interview right here but I'll look at it again when I find it.

Was hussein's mom a Queen? I really think she wsa a wise woman and never tried to totally control her son or take the limelight away from him or his wives. I wonder how her and QN got along.

Jordanian dignitaries congratulate King Hussein on his accession to the throne. To the left is Prince Mohammed, August 11, 1952.

Poor writing by the editors of King Hussein's website. If this was actually August 11, 1952, then they were congratulating him for the proclamation, not the accession/enthronement. It they were indeed congratulating him for the accession, then it would have been May 2, 1953.

From King Hussein's website Video and Audio - The Office of King Hussein I of Jordan
Note the wording carefully, the proclamation was in 1952 but did not assume constitutional power until may 1953. That's when the accession was.

From Wikipedia.com clearer wording
Hussein of Jordan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From the virtual Jewish library. Even clearer wording
King Hussein

From a tourism website. Not very good wording

In august 1952 Prince Hussein was actually enthroned and became HM the King of Jordan, since then he was the reigning king although he was still to young to exercise the powers of his position. The Regency Council did it on his behalf.

Look at the Constitution (Article 28):

(g) The King attains his majority upon the completion of his eighteenth year according to the lunar calendar. If the Throne devolves upon a person who is below this age, the powers of the King shall be exercised by a Regent or Council of Regency, who shall have been appointed by a Royal Decree by the reigning King.

Sorry, but you should not believe every rumor. I remember to have seen a lot of pictures (not only the one I have posted) showing the young KH (about 20 years old) with his brothers: PHassan still a child and PMuhammad clearly a teenage boy.

Their parents married on November 27th, 1934 in Amman and had their first child in November 1935: KH!

From all the children prince Hamza looks the most like his father. Just the same face.
