Early life
Prince Mohammed was born in Riyadh in 1908.[5] He was the youngest of Noura bint Abdul Rahman and Saud Al Kabeer's three children.[1][6] Prince Mohammed's full-sisters were Hessa and Al Jawhara.[3][6] The latter was one of the wives of King Faisal.[3][6][7]
Prince Mohammed's mother, Noura, was elder sister of King Abdulaziz.[6][8] His father, Saud Al Kabeer, was the grandson of Saud bin Faisal bin Turki, Emir of Nejd, who was the brother of Mohammed's maternal grandfather, Emir Abdul Rahman bin Faisal.[9]
Activities, personal life and death
Prince Mohammed joined some of the wars during the formation of Saudi Arabia.[5] He was one of the closest allies of Crown Prince Saud, later King Saud.[10] Following the establishment of the state he mostly dealt with horse and camel breeding[5] and business.[11] In 1961 he founded Yamama Cement company in Riyadh.[11] The company was one of the best performing construction firms in the region.[11] Although his three sons, Salman, Abdulaziz and Abdul Rahman, signed the document that demanded the abdication of King Saud in 1964, Prince Mohammed did not sign it and was in a hunting trip during the incident.[10] During the reign of King Khalid, Prince Mohammed was ranked second in royal protocol just after the king.[12]
Prince Mohammed had some eleven sons most of whom involve in business activities.[2] His eldest son, Abdullah, married Seeta bint Abdulaziz, one of King Abdulaziz's daughters and King Abdullah's full sister.[13] Prince Mohammed's other son, Sultan bin Mohammed, is a businessman.[14] His son Turki was an assistant undersecretary at the Foreign Ministry for political affairs in 2000.[15] Fahd bin Mohammed's spouse is Sara bint Sultan, daughter of former Crown Prince Sultan.[16] One of his daughters, Noura, is the wife of Mashour bin Abdulaziz and the mother of Sara bint Mashour who is Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's spouse.
In January 2018 eleven of Prince Mohammed's grandsons were arrested in Riyadh following their protest in front of the Qasr Palace or the Palace of Government, demanding the abolition of the royal order that stipulated stopping the payment of their bills for electricity and water.[17] All princes were released one week later.[17] However, his grandson Abdulaziz bin Salman bin Mohammed and the latter's son, Salman bin Abdulaziz, have been in detention since early 2018.[17]
Prince Mohammed died at age 90 in November 1998.[5][18]
In Arar there is a health-care institution named after Prince Mohammed, Prince Mohammed bin Saud Al Kabeer disease and dialysis center.[19] In Riyadh an annual horse race named the cup of Prince Mohammed bin Saud Al Kabeer is organized.[20]
