House of Saud
The House of Saud (Arabic: آل سعود‎‎ Āl Saʻūd IPA: [ʔæːl saʕuːd]) is the ruling royal family of Saudi Arabia. The family has thousands of members. It is composed of the descendants of Muhammad bin Saud, founder of the Emirate of Diriyah, known as the First Saudi state (1818–91), and his brothers, though the ruling faction of the family is primarily led by the descendants of Ibn Saud, the modern founder of Saudi Arabia. The family is estimated to comprise 15,000 members, but the majority of the power and wealth is possessed by a group of only about 2,000.
