About this record

Content

The statement gives the following information for each tribe listed:

  • Name of the tribe
  • Name of its Chief
  • Its place of headquarters
  • Number of subdivisions
  • Population
  • Amount of tribute paid to Amir Faisul ibn Turki al-Sa'ud
  • Number of horses procurable by each tribe
  • Remarks

The remarks relate to the expectation that the Chief of each tribe would each year give horses to Amir Faisul. The amount of horses is determined by the number of Jama (subdivisions) the tribe had; in return the chief would receive clothes, weapons and dates from the Amir. A further remark notes that those tribes who pay no tribute are expected to protect the Nejd [Najd] frontiers and to go on any expeditions that the Amir wishes them to.
