Crown Prince Hussein bin Abdullah is the first in line (heir apparent) to become King of Jordan. He is a member of the Hashemite ruling family.

The Crown Prince is the oldest child of Abdullah II of Jordan (Abdullah bin Hussein bin Talal bin Abdullah bin Hussein bin Ali), who has been King of Jordan, since 7 February, 1999, and of Queen Rania of Jordan (born Rania Al Abdullah). The Crown Prince is a Muslim.

The Crown Prince’s father is of half Jordanian Arab and half English descent. The Crown Prince’s mother was born in Kuwait City, Kuwait, of Palestinian Arab descent.

The Crown Prince’s patrilineal line can be traced to Muhammad ibn Abd al-Mu’in (1776-c. 1858), also known as Muhammad ibn Awn (محمد ابن عون), who was Sharif and Emir of Mecca, from 1827 to 1836, 1840 to 1851, and 1856 to 1858.

The Crown Prince’s paternal grandfather was Hussein of Jordan, King of Jordan, from 1952 to 1999. The Crown Prince’s grandfather was born in Amman, Transjordan, the son of Talal of Jordan, King of Jordan, from 1951 to 1952, and of Zein al-Sharaf. Talal was born in Mecca, now in Saudi Arabia, the son of Abdullah I of Jordan, who was Emir of Transjordan, from 1921 to 1946, and King of Jordan, from 1946 to 1951, and of Musbah bint Nasser. Zein was born in Alexandria, Sultanate of Egypt, the daughter of Jamal ‘Ali bin Nasser, Sharif of Mecca, Governor of Hauran, and of Wijdan Shakir Pasha.

The Crown Prince’s paternal grandmother is Princess Muna of Jordan (born Antoinette Avril Gardiner, the daughter of Walter Percy Gardiner and Doris Elizabeth Sutton). Antoinette is English, born in Samford, Suffolk, England. Walter was the son of Arthur Gardiner and Mabel Jane Tovell. Doris was the daughter of Arthur Sutton and Dora Elizabeth Alderton.

The Crown Prince’s maternal grandparents were Faisal Sedki Al-Yassin and Ilham Yassin. Faisal and Ilham were Palestinian Arabs, from Tulkarm, in the West Bank.

    Why haven’t you submitted his dad instead of the prince?

    • follers says:

      Simple, because his ancestry includes double the information (both of his parents).

      But probably more so, from a political standpoint, I find it interesting that a person of half-Palestinian descent will one day be King of Jordan (whose population is half Palestinian). For that reason he definitely interests me more than his father.
