Rulers of the UAE, and the 7 emirates

Check it out.

From the mainsite, Rulers.org ::
This site contains lists of heads of state and heads of government (and, in certain cases, de facto leaders not occupying either of those formal positions) of all countries and territories, going back to about 1700 in most cases. Also included are the subdivisions of various countries (the links are at the bottom of the respective country entries).

Neat site. Could help, if something of this sort is incorporated into non-public school curriculum. It's strange - kids attend schools *in* the UAE, learn about history, geography and political system of foreign nations (based on international affiliations), often countries they may never reside.

As far as I know, aside the UAE national anthem there is hardly anything about UAE/GCC history, geography, social ways or political set up in most private or international school curriculum.

Perhaps a positive step toward better awareness.

Wow - they actually list Mani bin Rashid - I bet he doesn't get a mention in the UAE's own official records ;)

And the relative newness of Dubai is apparent, though disappointingly they don't mention other former independent emirates other than Kalba.
