Abdullah bin Khalifa of Zanzibar
This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. (May 2014)
Sayyid Sir Abdullah bin Khalifa Al-Said, KBE, CMG (February 12, 1910 – July 1, 1963) (Arabic: عبد الله بن خليفة) was the 10th Sultan of Zanzibar after the death of his father, Khalifa bin Harub, who died on 9 October 1960 at age eighty-one. He was less popular than his father and had a rough reign as Sultan, as at the time of his death both his legs were amputated.
U.S. President John F. Kennedy had Galt & Bro, a Washington D.C. based jeweler, make a gold plaque as a gift for the Sultan, however it was never picked up from the jeweler following the President's 1963 assassination.
