Sherif Sabri Pasha
Sherif Sabri Pasha (Arabic: شريف صبري باشا) was the brother of Nazli Sabri, Queen consort of Egypt. He was thus the maternal uncle of Nazli's son King Farouk I, and served on the three-member Regency Council that was formed in 1936-37 during the latter's minority. Sherif Pasha Sabri was 41 years old at the time, and had previously held the post of Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs.
On 30 September 1946, Sherif Sabri Pasha was asked to become Prime Minister and head a new cabinet. However, he never became premier and Isma'il Sidqi Pasha remained Prime Minister until 9 December 1946.
Sherif Sabri Pasha headed the Egyptian Geographic Society from May 1946 till March 1955. Like his sister Nazli, he was a grandson of Egypt's three-time Prime minister Muhammad Sharif Pasha who was of Turkish origin, as well as a great-grandson of Napoleon Bonaparte's colonel Soliman Pasha al-Faransawi.
