Prince Ageel bin Muhammad al-Badr Hamidaddin (Arabic: عقيل بن محمد البدر حميد الدين) (born London in 1973) is the eldest son of Muhammad al-Badr, the last ruling king of the Yemen [1]


Yemen became a republic following the overthrow of the monarchy in 1962.[2] Since the death of his father in 1996, Ageel bin Muhammad has been the head of the royal Hamid ad-Din lineage. He uses the title Saif al-Islam ("Sword of Islam"), which was formerly carried by the Crown Princes of Yemen.[1]

Ageel bin Muhammed has two sons: Al-badr bin Ageel (born in 1993) and Ahmed bin Ageel (born in 2005).[citation needed]
