Early Life and Governance

Sheikh Mohammed bin Jassim Al Thani was born in 1881, in Doha, the capital city and state of Qatar, by his father, Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, together with his 18 siblings, including the fifth emir of Qatar for whom he abdicated, Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani.

Throughout his adolescence, his father prepared him for his future responsibility of governing Qatar. His father then chose him at the right time, to become the prince of the city of Umm Salal Mohammed, the capital city of the municipality of Umm Salal, and Doha. He then became the emir of Qatar in 1913, but his rule was cut off one year later when he abdicated in favor of his brother, Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani.
