Well, "anything" is still quite vague! Do you have a particular area of interest (geneology, who is who, etc.?)

For geneology and and a who's who see:

For a synopsis on the current RF see the following discussion

And an article on how the current claimant's rather colourful ex wife was kicked out of her Paris apartment for not paying her bills:,00.html

Hope that this answers some of your questions

Fuad I (Ahmed Fuad Pasha), 18681936, first king of modern Egypt, son of the khedive Ismail Pasha. Educated in Europe, Fuad returned to Egypt in 1880. He was particularly concerned with military and cultural affairs and founded the Univ. of Cairo in 1906. He succeeded his brother Hussein as sultan in 1917. Fuad took the title king in 1922, although the final dissolution of the British dominion in Egypt was delayed until 1923. Fuad's difficulties with the Wafd party led him, in 1928, to abrogate the constitution of 1923 and substitute a new constitution providing for a parliament with advisory powers only. Great agitation compelled him, in 1935, to restore the earlier constitution. He was succeeded by his son, Farouk.

King Farouk I (Fouad's son) He was born in 1921. When King Fouad, his father died, Farouk was still under age, and accordingly a regency council was formed of Prince Mohammad Ali, Aziz Ezzat Pasha and Sherif Sabry Pasha to run the scene until his constitutional powers were completely handed over to him on July 29, 1937. During his reign, Egypt was in a state of incomplete independence and suffered from chaos and corruption.
On July 23, 1952, the revolution erupted and King Farouk was forced to abdicate the throne to his son Ahmed Fouad II who was a child then. The abdication document was signed in Ras El Teen Palace on July 26, 1952, and Farouk left Egypt to Italy where he died in 1965 and was buried in Egypt in El Refai mosque.

King Ahmad Fouad II (son of King Farouk)
He was born in Cairo in January 16, 1952 and ruled nominally from July 26, 1952 until the declaration of the Republic. His father King Farouk abdicated the throne to him, under the pressure of the revolution, on July 26, 1952. A regency council, however, was formed of Prince Mohammad Abd El-Moneim, Bahei El Din Barakat Pasha and Lieutenant Rashad Mohanna until the Republic was declared on June 18, 1953.

queens of egyptThe 17-year-old bride was stunningly beautiful, with a shy charm. Her dashing groom, only 18, was head of one of world's mightiest kingdoms at the time. The glamorous couple delighted a nation. She had the kind of breeding that takes generations to achievepoliteness, friendliness and confidence. She also benefitted from a good education at Alexandria's Notre Dame de Sion; with emphasis on manners and fluency in languages.

She was Safinaz Hanim Zulfikar and he was HM King Faruk, Head of the Mehmet Ali dynasty. Their glittering wedding, was on 20 January 1938 at the Kubbe sarayi in Cairo.

Eleven years later, and after the birth of her third daughter, sorrow abounded. When it became apparent that HM the King was unable to return the affections of the lonely Farida, she delicately encouraged their divorce which took place on 19 November 1948. From her private Pyramids Villa, her favorite refuge, which later on she could not recapture from its agressors, to Lebanon, Paris and Switzerland, a collection of her paintings and letters revealed her misery.

HM Queen Farida was born at Alexandria, 5 September 1921, daughter of HE Yusuf Zulfikar Paşa and Zeynep Hanim Mehmet Sait. She died at Cairo on 16 October 1988 and was buried at her family's mausoleum in Cairo.

Children HRH Princess Feriyal, born at Alexandria, 17 November 1938, married Jean-Pierre Perreten. Her Royal Highness now lives in Le Chatel, Bex, in Canton Vaud, Switzerland. HRH Princess Fevziye, born at Alexandria, 7 April 1940. Her Royal Highness remained unmarried and lives at Villa La Crtaz, Chernex, in Canton Vaud, Switzerland. HRH Princess Fadia, born at Abidin sarayi, Cairo, 15 December 1943, died at Pully, Switzerland, 28 December 2002 (buried on 4 January 2003 at Rifaii Royal Mosque, Cairo), married Pierre Orloff at London, 17 February 1965

This link is great Hilal, and I think that Mohammed Ali Pasha is an historical character that deserves to be discussed, and maybe having a thread of his own! ;)

HRH Princess Neslişah Osmanoğlu, born at the Dolmabahe sarayı in Istanbul on 4 February 1921, is the daughter of both the last Ottoman sultan, Vahideddin's daughter Sabiha Sultan and the last caliph of the Muslim world, Halife Abdlmecid Efendi's son Şehzade mer Faruk Efendi.

On March 1924, the young Neslişah Sultan was forced to exile, and in 1940 married the Egyptian Heir Apparent HRH Prince Abdlmunim who later (in 1952) become the Regent of the Egyptian Kingdom and thus HRH Princess Neslişah Osmanoğlu was considered as Egypt's "First Lady".

Again forced into exile in 1953, HRH lived for a short period of time in Europe before finally returning to her ancestors land Turkey, where she is currently residing at Istanbul's Ortaky district making her the eldest member of the Ottoman dynasty currently living in Turkey

The Fake Princess
The latest story about king Farouk life is a very funny one ,a woman suddenly appears to the whole world claiming that she is the daughter of king Farouk.She even made a web site for her self,her daughters,and her latest husband.She gives her self the title of H.I.R.H ,and to her friends the tiltles of the duke of Alex,and Aswan.I don't know from where did she got thoses titles.In Egypt we don't have the title of duke at all.
