Abdullah, Ruler of Jordan
Although at first, Abdullah was regarded an idle and lazy man, he did turn out to be an effective ruler. And his is the only Hashemite kingdom that survived. That kingdom, Jordan, has since 1999 been ruled by Abdullah's great-grandson King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein.
A set of three stamps and a miniature sheet was issued to mark the coronation in 1999.
A similar set was issued with a portrait of both the King and Queen Rania Al-Abdullah.
