I found this I hope this is of some help. It is from a book about Sheikh Rashid.

...However despite Sheikh Rashid’s own recovery, tragedy befell the Al Maktoum family again. In May 1983, Sheikha Latifa, wife of the Ruler, was in London for medical treatment when she passed away. Early on May 18, the Ruler’s office in Dubai broke the news of the tragedy when it announced to the media: “With our hearts full of grief for what Almighty God had ordained, the Court of HH Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum announces the death of Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan bint Zayed Al Nahyan yesterday. May her soul rest in peace and God console our hearts for the grave loss.”
Unusually for a woman who played her role from the background, full state mourning was accorded to Sheikha Latifa. National flags were lowered to half mast, seven days of mourning were ordered, UAE Embassies the world over were closed for three days and all public engagements cancelled.
The shock felt within the community seems to have been palpable, to the extent that the English daily Khaleej Times reported ten thousand mourners attended the last rights.
Sheikh Rashid was devastated. His beloved wife of forty-four years torn from him, the stinging grief of his loss was almost too much to bear. “He loved Sheikha Latifa dearly and was hurting like I had never seen,” recalls Bin Sukat. “In around forty years of knowing Sheikh Rashid, this was the only time that I ever saw him cry. He loved her so much.”
Hundreds of citizens and expatriates offered their personal condolences to Sheikh Rashid and his sons. UAE President Sheikh Zayed and the Rulers of Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman and Fujairah called on them at Za’abeel Palace. The Iranian Deputy Prime Minister, Mirza Taheri, flew in to pay his respects, as did the Qatari Foreign Minister and representatives of the Rulers of Kuwait and Oman.
The death of Sheikha Latifa was a blow to her husband. Hamad bin Sukat recalls that it took several months before Sheikh Rashid seemed to return to normal, adding: “I’m sure it was never my imagination, but he never seemed quite the same.” ...

thanks and....

Thanks for your help - the women don't seem to be mentioned on the family tree?

What about the four brothers/sons of Sheikh Rashid - Maktoum, Hamdan, Mohammed and Ahmed. Does anyone know how many wives and children each of them have?

And there seems to be controversy about Mohammed's wives - Hind and Haya and who is the primary wife?

Thanks in anticipation!

The UAE Women’s Federation which was established in 1975 under the leadership of Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak addresses several issue of concern regarding marriage and the family.
Anywhere in the West, this would be called rascist and classed as discrimination!

Dubai's first Olympic Gold Medal

Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Hasher Al-Maktoum won an Olympic gold medal in the men’s double trap shooting final in the 2004 Games at Athens.

Shaikh Ahmed bin Hasher Al-Maktoum is not only the first Emirati to win an Olympic gold medal and the first sportsman from an Arab country to do so at the 2004 Games, but he also tied a world record.

This is not much more than a guess on my part, but I do not think Shaikh Ahmed is a descendant of His Highness Shaikh Rashid bin Saeed bin Maktoum Al-Maktoum (grandfather of the current ruler of Dubai, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid bin Saeed Al-Maktoum).

Can anyone tell me what is the family relation between His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid bin Saeed Al-Maktoum (ruler of Dubai) and Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Hasher Al-Maktoum (who won the gold medal for the United Arab Emirates)?

Thak you,

The filing of this lawsuit is new, though the accusation is rather old international news that has been around for years. It has long been published of in magazines, & there is also film documentary.

It appears that the accusations are based upon some very solid facts of evidence. A Google search will pull up much more information in regard to the plights of the child camel jockies.
