Al Maktoum Road
Al Maktoum is the family name of the ruling dynasty of the emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Al Maktoum family is a branch of the Bani Yas tribe, a lineage the family shares with the Al Nahyan dynasty of Abu Dhabi, a powerful bedouin clan from the interior. The Al Maktoum family descends from the Al Bu Falasah (now known as Al-Falasi) section of the Bani Yas, a highly respected and authoritative tribal federation that was the dominant power throughout most of what is now the United Arab Emirates. In 1833, about 800 members of the Bani Yas tribe, under the leadership of Maktoum bin Butti, took over the emirate of Dubai and established the Al Maktoum dynasty in the emirate.
The Al Maktoum dynasty has ruled Dubai since 1833. Within the federation of the United Arab Emirates, the ruler of Dubai is also the country’s Vice President and Prime Minister.
