Qatari Royal Family Members 

The House of Thani ( Arabic : اَل ثاني Al Thani ‎‎) is the ruling family of Qatar , whose origins can be traced back to the Ma'adid clan of the Banu Tamim tribal confederation. [1]

The fates of 26 members of a Qatari royal hunting party held hostage for more than a year in Iraq were used to help negotiate a population swap in Syria, where residents on Friday started leaving two Shia villages and two Sunni towns in a synchronised easing of a four-year siege brokered by regional powers.

Qatar is the world’s richest country and is home to the world’s third-largest natural gas reserve. The small Arabian Peninsula has the highest per capita income in the world, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
