The Emir of Qatar: Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani (42).

In the mid-18th century, Bedouins moved to what is now Qatar. One of these Bedouin tribes was the al-Thani clan. They settled in the settlement of al-Bidda. This later developed into Doha, today’s capital of Qatar. The then head of the family, Sheikh Muhammad al-Thani, became the strongest force and thus the founder of the ruling family of Qatar, the al-Thani dynasty, which still reigns today.

The man ruling the country today is Emir Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani (42). He has three wives and twelve children. In 2013, at just 33 years old, he took power in Qatar from his father Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani (70). Thanks to the wealth from the coveted resources of oil and gas, he laid the foundation for modern Qatar.
