Now that the Soccer World Cup has kicked off its 2022 edition in Qatar, many have been the eyes that have rested on the Royal House of a country around which criticism has revolved of the last days. And it is that, despite the fact that it may seem that many European monarchies are against holding a sporting event of such caliber in an enclave that does not enjoy total freedom for its citizens, the residents there seem to be delighted with hosting this football quote with the greatest of illusions, especially taking into account the Emir’s passion for this field, having chosen in 2005 to found Qatar Sports Investments and later take control of the Paris Saint-Germaina team that has the most outstanding stars of all time.

A personal side that does not go unnoticed
However, far from standing out for his power, the sheikh draws special attention in everything related to his private life, and it is not for less. The Emir has three wives, something totally normal within Islamic law as long as the husband treats all of them in the same way, without favoring any. Secondly, As a result of these three marriages, no more and no less than thirteen children have been bornseven boys and six girls, of which one of them will be his successor on the Qatari throne.

The second wife is none other than Al-Anoud bint Mana Al Hajri, mother of five of his children; and finally, the third is Noora bint Hathal Al Dosari, with whom she has had four children.
