Oman: Al-Said family tree

Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al-Said’s return to Oman in March 2015 after a long absence for health care in Germany (since the previous July) was a major event in the sultanate, reflecting his central role in the decades since he unseated his father, Said Bin Taimur, in 1970. Qaboos is now by far the longest-serving ruler in the Gulf Co-operation Council, adding to intimations of mortality for a ruler who has formally accumulated most of the high offices of state.

Published as part of GSN 1000, this family tree provides an overview of the Al-Said. It iincludes an abridged family tree, as well as an article detailing the significance of the Al-Said family within the Gulf.
