Royal Family of Oman: Al Said dynasty
 

Coat of Arms of the Sultanate of Oman

I'm interested... The present Sultan of Oman has no issue, has he nominated his eventual successor?

I don't think he has named a successor but it is a hereditary sultan so my guess would be a son.

Oman: A Monarchy with No Heir Apparent
The Sultanate of Oman is the only Gulf monarchy with no heir apparent...

The sultan of Oman is pursuing the development of his country by attempting to blend the old with the new.
On the seashore of the most eastern point of the Arabian peninsula, a huddle of British, French and Germans wades through rich white sand in the moonlight.

The more I read about Oman the more I'd like to visit. I hope the Sultan's plans are a success and that the ME doesn't end up with another Dubai on its hands!

Omani Royal Family
 
I was just wondering about, generally, the Omani Royal Family. I know about Sultan Qaboos and the Princess who does the Early On and Later On shows, but who are the rest? What do they do? Any photos?

Sheikha Al Farsi is not from the Omani Royal family, her NAME is Sheikha and not her title lol, and her surname is Al Farsi, not Al Said (which is the royal surname)

In Oman the ruling family are referred to as Sayyid (for male) and Sayyida (for female) not Sheikhs and Sheikhas, that's only for tribal rulers.

here's a link to a picture of one of the royal children, i think he's between 17-19, from his high school.

Here are some links of the ruling Al-Said/Al-Busiad dynasty if anyone is still interested:

- Sultanate of Oman

- Zanzibar

This is now the Sultan of Oman's successor is determined.
Several years before his death he writes down his succesor
in a secret envelope no one is allowed to open until he has
passed on.

That's a bit over-simplistic. What Wiki says on the succession issue is this:

Unlike the heads of other Persian Gulf Arab states, Qābūs ibn Saˤīd has not publicly named an heir. Article 6 of the constitution actually provides that the Ruling Family Council chooses the successor after the throne becomes vacant, and that the sultan's preference, to be expressed in an official letter (which Qābūs maintains has already been sealed and delivered to the Defence Minister), is only resorted to in the event of lack of familial consensus.

The line of succession is unclear in Oman, where there is a history of contested successions and coups d'Etat. Sultan Qābūs ibn Saˤīd deposed his own father. His father had replaced his grandfather after what may have been a forced abdication. Qābūs ibn Saˤīd has no children and has three sisters. There are other male membes of the Omani royal family such as several paternal uncles who are still alive and their families. Using primogeniture the successor to Qābūs would appear to be the children of his late uncle, His Royal Highness Prince Tariq bin Taimur Al-Said, the former, first and only Prime Minister in Oman's history.

That is correct. However, if there is no written "secret" envelope then The Ruling Family Council decide: Article 6 of the constitution actually provides that the Ruling Family Council chooses the successor after the throne becomes vacant

Correction: His Majesty Sultan Qaboos has 2 sisters, not 3 (2 of his sisters have passed away)

Other than that, all that has been mentioned is true.

H.Staimur 01-24-2009 05:54 AM

Okay let me understand this, Sultan Qaboos has two sisters and both of them passed away? Or did he have three sisters and two of them died? Aren't the paternal uncles of Sultan Qaboos hrmm quite old?

Actually I am wrong. His Majesty has two sisters; they have both passed away.

And yes, his uncles are quite old.

Thanks, so Sultan Qaboos is the only son then, right? Do you know if his mother is still alive?
He seems to be a great leader, but also for some reason, it seems like he is lonely. Or maybe that's just a feeling I have.

Yes, he is the only son. His mother has passed away long ago.

He is a great leader indeed.

Hi this is my first post on THF but I love reading all the info:smile:. Could anyone give me some details on the Sultan and his wife. Does he have only one wife (I thought I read somewhere he divorced one wife because she did not give him a son.......was that susan?) I also read that she is American? Does anyone know how thay met or is she a private person (i.e not in the media). Thanks in advance:flowers:

Warren 02-06-2009 07:31 AM

Welcome to the Forums cherish! :flowers:
This is what Wiki has to say:

In 1976 Qaboos ibn Sa‘id married his cousin, Kamila, ne Sayyidah Nawwal bint Tariq (born 1951), daughter of HH Sayyid Tariq ibn Taymur, but the marriage soon ended in divorce. He has no children.

Thank you for the info.
