BiographyEdit

Leadership of the family passed from his older brother Abd al-Aziz, to a nephew and finally to two grandnephews before being reclaimed by Abdallah's descendants. Abdallah played a prominent part in the military campaigns of his father and brother, notably in the subjugation of the provinces of Sudair, Washm and al-Kharj[citation needed]. His main claim to fame, however, is that he was the father of Turki, founder of the Second Saudi State[2] from whom all subsequent heads of the House of Saud trace their descent.
