The House of Saud had humble beginnings as a household of nomads living in Arabia. Now the international oil trade has produced Saudi Arabia a single of the richest nations in the world, and also the Saudi royal family finds itself caught in the balance between traditional Islamic faith and the appeal of wealth and Western-style ways. Wars had been waged for over a century until the Al Saud vision finally was realized under King Abdul Aziz, the very first king of modern-day Saudi Arabia. But when a new form making use of the Islamic religion, Wahhabism, influenced the household, they began a quest to unite all of Arabia below this faith. Combining new info on current events with important historical context, The Saudi Royal Family will spark debate on what lies ahead for on the list of richest households in the globe. In addition, evidence points to Saudi involvement in the September 11th attacks on the Usa.
