Early Life and Education

Prince Bandar was born officially on March 2, 1949 in Taif, Saudi Arabia. His actual date of birth is reportedly later according to Bandar himself and Western think tanks. Bandar had reportedly fake his birthday to enter the RAF.[1]

Bandar's mother, Khizaran, was a servant to his father.[2] Khizaran was a dark-skinned sixteen-year-old servant from Africa. She could not read or write; she later taught herself. Bandar, who sees her regularly, says that she was a concubine. He lived with his mother and his aunt, and had little contact with his father when he was very young. He was Khizaran's only child, although he has a number of half-brothers.[3][4]
