Dubai: Al-Maktoum family tree

Dubai’s Al-Maktoum have created the Gulf ’s most vibrant business hub and a global profile via their investments, focus on commerce and trade, love of horse-racing and position of Dubai as a major tourist hub. Dubai is the second key emirate in the UAE (alongside Abu Dhabi), and the ruling families of both come from the same Bani Yas tribe: Al-Maktoum from the Al Bu Falasah/Al-Falasi section and Al-Nahyan from the Al Bu Falah. The two branches split when, led by Sheikh Maktoum I Bin Bati Bin Suhayl, the Al-Maktoum left Abu Dhabi for Dubai in the 1830s; the family’s rule started shortly after.

Published as part of GSN 1000, this report contains an abridged family tree, as wellas an overview of the Al-Maktoum family and their significance within Dubai.

This family tree can be accessed as part of a GSN subscription, or purchased separately for £60.
