You are welcome
Despite being seriously injured, Hiyam was lucky enough to survive the massacre. She was protected by some soldiers from her family tribe. Princess Badiya escaped with the help of the Saudi Embassy. She left Iraq with her family to Lebanon first & later settled in London.
The coup soldiers were merciless, they even abused the dead bodies of the king & his family members especially Price Abdul-Ilah.
Years later, upon King Hussein's request, the Iraqi authorities re-buried the victims' bodies at the royal mausoleum in Bagdad.

All the royal residences in Iraq have been confiscated by the Iraqi government.

- Al Zahoor Palace (means Flowers) is the first royal palace in Iraq, I was built by King Faisal I and completed in the thirties of the twentieth century. It was then located on the river Khar or Alashash.
After the coup of 1958, the palace remained deserted for decades and was later annexed to the Al-Salam Palace when it was built. The palace was destroyed during the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

- Al-Rehab Palace ( the massacre palace)is the second royal palace & was the official residence of King Feisal II. It was built at the expense of the royal family & located west of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, specifically opposite to Al Zahoor Palace.

Al-Rehab Palace was named after the village of Al-Rehab near the city of Taif in Saudi Arabia, where the royal family descended. It was completed in 1937 under the supervision of Prince Abdul Ilah, the Custodian of the Throne then.

After the coup, the palace was left deserted and then used as a tourist investment and later turned to a permanent headquarters for the director of public security and became a prison. In 1973, the Iraqi authorities completely demolished the palace and broadcast the event on television.

- King Feisal`s Summer Palace is located at the town of Sersank, Duhok province, Iraqi Kurdistan.
The palace was built by King Faisal II in 1953 to be a summer residence for the King & the royal family. After the coup, it was used as a military barracks and later restored to become part of the presidential palaces under the rule of former President Saddam Hussein.
The palace was destroyed in the 1990s with the outbreak of the Kurdish uprising in Iraq. The authorities of Kurdistan have recently transferred its ownership to King Abdullah II of Jordan as the heir to the Iraqi royal family and. It is currently under renovation.

- King Feisal II`s Properties in the USA: ِAccording to the Iraqi press it was divided between Ms. Genevieve Arnault (two thirds) and Prince Zeid Bin Al Hussein, who inherited the remaining third.

- King Feisal II`s Palace in the UK: Ms. Genevieve Arnault filed a case in UK courts to inherit it but it was rejected because she failed to prove her marriage to the late King.

There's also the Republican Palace.


The present Republican Palace was originally envisioned as a royal palace. Faisal II commissioned its construction with the intent that it would become the new permanent seat of the Iraqi monarchy, but he never had the opportunity to actually live in it. After the 14 July Revolution, the palace was given its present name. I'm not sure if the Republican Palace was used as a presidential residence under Qasim, but I do know that it was used as such under the Ba'athist regime that followed him, and it the place where Saddam Hussein most preferred to meet with visiting heads of state. I believe it also became a central location for the Ba'ath Party leadership and, maybe, for the Revolutionary Command Council as well. Saddam also commissioned a rather large expansion of the Republican Palace during that time.

After coalition forces took Baghdad during the Iraq War, the Republican Palace became the seat of the Coalition Provisional Authority, and the central hub around which the "Green Zone" in Baghdad developed. Unfortunately, the disestablishment of the CPA marked the end of the Republican Palace's use as an official residence; Radwaniyah Palace, which was originally built under orders of Saddam Hussein for use as a presidential resort, became the new official residence of the President of Iraq.

After the CPA was folded up, the Republican Palace served as a temporary United States Embassy while the present United States Embassy in Baghdad was being constructed. I'm not sure what function the Republican Palace has been given since the U.S. Embassy moved down the street, though.

The founder and head of the constitutional monarchy movement in Iraq, Sharif Ali bin Al Hussein, passed away on Monday, in the Jordanian capital, Amman, at the age of 66.

Iraq news agency


The late Sharif Ali is the youngest son of Iraq's Princess Badia bint Ali bin Al hussein and thus a maternal cousin to the late King Faisal II.
