The site that is currently the Amiri Diwan was previously Al Bidda Fort, built in the 18th century. It was later designated as a military fort called Qal'at Al-Askar during the Ottoman period in Qatar
. After the Ottomans withdrew from Qatar, the building became the official office of Qatar's Rulers, and was renamed Doha Palace, also sometimes being known as Qal'at Al-Shouyoukh (Palace of the Sheikhs). The fort was officially renamed to Amiri Diwan in 1971 after Qatar gained its independence from the United Kingdom
and the title Amir replaced the title Ruler of the State of Qatar.
