Published in March 2024, this family tree illustrates the political and economic power of the Bin Salman branch of the Al-Saud ruling family across Saudi Arabia's political and business environments.

Analysis of key figures in King Salman Bin Abdelaziz’s ruling group shows how power has become concentrated to an unprecedented extent in the monarch’s immediate family and their close aides.

The family tree  and influence chart shows an Al-Salman ruling group that could dominate the Saudi polity long after King Salman Bin Abdelaziz’s reign is over. Past changes in the kingdom’s leadership have seen power and influence flow between the immediate descendants of the founder King Abdelaziz (Ibn Saud), but Salman has set the scene for a succession to the next generation and one which favours his own offspring.
