Короле́вство Сау́довская Ара́вия — крупнейшее государство на Аравийском полуострове. Зарождение Саудовского государства началось в 1744 в центральном регионе Аравийского полуострова. В 1817 османский Султан отправил на Аравийский полуостров войска под командованием Мухаммеда Али-паши, которые разгромили относительно слабую армию Имама Абдаллы. Таким образом, Первое Саудовское государство просуществовало seventy three года.Всего через 7 лет (в 1824) было основано Второе Саудовское государство со столицей в Эр-Рияде. Это государство просуществовало sixty seven лет и было уничтожено давними врагами Саудов — династией Рашиди. В 1902 22-летний Абдель Азиз из семьи Саудов захватил Эр-Рияд, расправившись с губернатором из семьи Рашиди.В 1920, используя поддержку англичан, Абдель Азиз окончательно разбил Рашиди. В 1926 Абдель Азиз аль-Сауд был объявлен королем Хиджаза. Через несколько лет он захватил практически весь Аравийский полуостров,1932 Неджд и Хиджаз были объединены в одно государство, названное Саудовской Аравией. Сам же Абдель Азиз стал королем Саудовской Аравии.
