Biography

Badr bin Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (1934 – July 21, 2004) (Arabic: بدر بن سعود آل سعود) was a Governor of the Riyadh province of Saudi Arabia, and a member of the House of Saud.

Life and career

Early life and education

Badr bin Saud was educated at the hands of his father, King Saud. He finished his secondary education at the Institute of Al Anjal.

Governor of Riyadh province

At the end of 1962, King Saud and Crown Prince Faisal were in a fratricidal feud over who should hold real power, In January 1963, the King fired most of the provincial governors, who may have been loyal to the Crown Prince, one of whom was Prince Fawaz bin Abdulaziz the Governor of the capitol region, and replaced some of them with his sons, one of whom was Prince Badr.

He was appointed Governor of Riyadh province on January 20, 1963, and was fired by Crown Prince Feisal a mere two weeks later on February 4. He then went into private business, never serving in government again.

Exile

In 1964, King Saud was forced into exile in Geneva, Switzerland, and then on to other European cities. In 1966, Saud was invited by Nasser to live in Egypt; another report claims that King Saud went to Egypt under refuge granted by Nasser and stayed there from 1965 to 1967.
