Biography[edit | edit source]

One of eleven children, his father's half brother HH Sultan Ali bin Hamud of Zanzibar was the Sultan of Omani controlled Zanzibar.[1][2]

Often one of the most overlooked members of the House of Al-Said, Aladdin is credited with creating the Iran-Turkey-Oman alliance that lasts to date.[3][4][5]

Moving to the dying Ottoman Empire at an early age, Aladdin forged an alliance by marriage with the warring Persian, Balkan and Arabian provinces of the Ottoman.[1]

Although the alliance did nothing to stop the disintegration of the empire it did allow for independence to come with a lower level of bloodshed on all sides.[5][4]

Aladdin was granted control over a Sanjakand given the title Sanjak-bey. [4][5]

Aladdin all but disappeared after the Second World War, reportedly retreating to a quiet family life in the mountains. [3][4]

He made a rare pulic appearance following the break down of one of his marriages which resulted in the exile of his wife. Of their children only the youngest son stayed with his mother, sharing in a life time of exile. [4][1]

The offspring of the exiled son retain a relatively low profile to this day, retaining their royal titles but not involving themselves in political or royal affairs.
