The Emirate of Nejd and Hasa was a state that existed from 1913 to 1921. It was a monarchy led by the House of Saud.[1] The state was formed after Saudi forces seized Al-Ahsa from the control of the Ottoman garrison, during the Conquest of al-Hasa. It is a direct antecedent of the Sultanate of Nejd.
