Through the line of Hasan bin Ali, Prince Zeid’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his 40th great-grandfather, Hashim ibn Abd Manaf. But traditionally, Hashim’s patrilineal ancestry can be further traced back to Ibrahim.

Prince Zeid’s maternal grandfather was Sven Gustav Lind (the son of Karl Gustaf Lind and Jenny Maria Scherqvist). Karl was the son of Carl Axel Lind and Anna Stina Rosengren. Jenny was the daughter of Adolf Wilhelm Scherqvist and Johanna Kjellén.

Prince Zeid’s maternal grandmother was Karin Gunlög Inga Birgitta Grönwall (the daughter of Eugen Assar Alexius Grönwall and Signe Maria Svensson). Assar was the son of Johan Henric Wilhelm Grönwall and Anna Laurentia Ahlström. Signe was the daughter of Per Svensson and Hilma Martina Hallbeck.

Prince Zeid’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his fourth great-grandmother, Anna Maria Nilsson.
