: Hello Damian,
: I think there are many more similar
: examples, well, many is a big word but at
: least a few more. For example, Nayef himself
: has an older full brother, Prince Abdul
: Rahman (born in 1931?), who should have
: "succeeded" Prince Sultan but he
Thanks for providing another example. There seems to be no information on why Prince Abdul Rahman was passed over. Perhaps he declined like Prince Mohammed did. Incidentally I discovered that King Abdullah has another older half-brother still living, Prince Bandar. His brief Wikipedia entry states that he takes little interest in politics and that he too may have declined the succession because of this.
At any rate, it seems Prince Mohammed was not the sole example after all. Thanks for pointing this out.
