Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Though we are living in the modern society but there are some royal families in the world who still have the certain effect on their country's government.

Tom, a popular Chinese website has conducted a survey to choose which is the most beautiful royal lineage in the world and the result must have satisfied many people. Beat up all the famous royal families, the Dubai royal family becomes the most beautiful royal lineage. The members of this family make the world surprising with their admiring and mysterious beauty. The history of Dubai's rulership is very interesting. From the very beginning until today, the Maktoum dynasty has been the only one family to ever rule the Emirate. In recent, Sheikh Mohamed bin, son of Rashid Al Maktoum who is not only talented, ambitious but also quite entrepreneurial, takes over as the leader of the royal family of Dubai and its government. It can be said that Sheikh Mohammed is the mastermind behind Dubai’s gigantic success story.

The Al Maktoum family is a branch of the Bani Yas tribe (a lineage the family shares with the Al Nahyan dynasty of Abu Dhabi), a powerful bedouin clan from the interior. The Al Maktoum family descends from the Al Bu Falasah (now known as Al-Falasi) section of the Bani Yas, a highly respected and authoritative tribal federation that was the dominant power throughout most of what is now the United Arab Emirates. In 1833, about 800 members of the Bani Yas tribe, under the leadership of Maktoum bin Butti, took over the emirate of Dubai and established the Al Maktoum dynasty in the emirate.
