Abdulaziz bin Mithab (Arabic: عبد العزيز بن متعب‎). (ruled: 1897 – 1906) A son of the third amir of Al Rashid, he was adopted by his uncle Mohammed, the fifth amir, and brought up to be his heir. After Mohammed died of natural causes, Abdulaziz succeeded him unopposed. However, the Rashidi rule was insecure, as their Ottoman allies were unpopular and weakening. In 1904 the young Ibn Saud, the founder of Saudi Arabia, returned from Kuwait with a small force and retook Riyadh. Abdulaziz died in the battle of Rawdat Muhanna with Ibn Saud and Mubarak Al-Sabah in 1906. After several other battles with Saudis.
