Early life
Sa'ad was born in 1890.[1] He was the youngest son of Abdul Rahman bin Faisal Al Saud from his marriage to Sara bint Ahmed Al Sudairi.[2][3][4] His full-siblings were Faisal, Noura, Abdulaziz, Bazza and Haya.[4]
Arrest and death
In 1912 Saad was sent by Emir Abdulaziz to meet Sharif Hussein who came in Nifi to build a good relationship with him.[5] However, he was attacked and captured in Al 'Iridh area by the Al Shiyabiyn clan belonged to the 'Utaybah tribe.[5] His companion Faraj ibn Lihif, on the other hand, was killed in the same incident.[5] Saad was brought to Sharif Hussein[5] who sent an envoy, Khalid ibn Luai, Amir of Al Khurmah, to Emir Abdulaziz demanding that he should accept the sovereignty of the Ottoman government in the region as well as to pay an annual sum of money to the Ottoman government for Saad's release.[5] Emir Abdulaziz accepted all these requests signing a paper, and Saad was released.[5][6]
Saad was later killed in the battle of Kinzaan against the Ajman tribe in 1915.[2][7][8] In the same battle, Emir Abdulaziz was wounded.[1][8] The Ajman tribe forces were led by the maternal grandfather of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.[9]
Personal life
One of Sa'ad's wives was the sister of Tarfa bint Abdullah, mother of King Faisal.[10] Another of his wives was Jawhara bint Saad Al Sudairi.[11] Following the death of Sa'ad she married Abdulaziz with whom she had at least four children, including Saad, Musaed and Abdul Muhsin.[11]
Sa'ad's sons, Faisal, Fahd, and Saud, were taken in by Abdulaziz and raised as part of his own family. They later married into the King's family. Faisal bin Saad married Abdulaziz's daughter Sara bint Abdulaziz. Another daughter of Abdulaziz, Al Anoud, married to the sons of Sa'ad bin Abdul Rahman.[3] She first married Fahd bin Saad. After they divorced, she married Saud bin Saad.[3] Sa'ad's grandson, Bandar bin Saud, a former air force pilot, was among the victims in the Swissair Flight 111 accident on his way from New York City to Geneva on 2 September 1998.[12]
