Abdelaziz bin Khalifa bin Hamad bin Abdullah bin Jassim bin Muhammed Al Thani (born 12 December 1948 in Rayyan near Doha)[citation needed] (Arabic: عبد العزيز بن خليفة) is a member of the royal family of Qatar, House of Thani.

Early life

Abdelaziz bin Khalifa is the first son of Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani, the eighth Emir of Qatar, and eldest child of the Emir and his first spouse, Sheikha Amna bint Hassan bin Abdulla Al Thani. Sheikh Abdelaziz is the elder half-brother of Hamad, the former Emir of Qatar.[1]


Abdelaziz served as oil minister and minister of finance between 1972 and 1992.[2][3][4][5]


After leaving office, Abdelaziz began to live in France.[6] In an alleged news article mentioning a foiled coup, he was supported by 66 opposition leaders including 16 Thani in 2011. None of Qatar's citizens or residents are aware of said coup and no other established credible local, regional or western source about such coup can be found.[7]

Quartet media reports that Abdelaziz is the head of the opposition.[8]
