Egyptian Royal Family
This is a group of black and white photos depicting Egypt’s Royal Family and descendants of Mohamed Ali that ruled the country from the 19th to the mid-20th Century, precisely 1952, when King Farouk I, the last Egyptian monarch, was overthrown by the Egyptian army.
The reason I’m including those photos is not the King Farouk mania currently spreading in Egypt, it’s just that I believe that each and every king or president who ruled my beloved country has influenced it in some positive way and left a good impact or at least helped the nation take a step forward in its struggle for liberation and independence.
We should pay a tribute to the Royal Egyptian Family as well as our late President Jamal Abdul Naser. We owe the Revolution of July 23rd a lot, even though, with all due respect to those who support it wholeheartedly, I hold some of its guardians responsible for the current widespread mayhem in Egypt.
