Rulers and Royal Families of UAE

by / / Abu Dhabi

Rulers and Royal Families of UAE, the constitutional federation of Seven Emirates.

The desert land once inhabited by nomadic shepherds and fishermen is today one of the world’s most modern country. Around forty four tribes lived in the region. The tribal structure was followed eve during British Protectorate. Bani Yas Tribe was the largest tribal force in the land.

In order to survive in the harsh desert climate, the tribes quarrelled each other. Leaders controlling water resources and territories were respected by the people. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan unified the tribes and formed the federation of United Arab Emirates. Since 1966 Sheikh Zayed was the leader of Abu Dhabi and he became the 1st United Arab Emirate’s President .

The people of the vast desert land always respected their tribal leaders. The same amount of love and respect is given to the modern rulers also. The natives and the residents love and respect their rulers. The people still follow their tribal culture.  The doors to Majilis, the royal audience hall is always open for people to meet their Sheikhs. They seek their Sheikh’s valuable guidance and assistance. At Majilis they discuss tribal matters and future arrangements.
