Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
The Governor of The Eastern Region of Abu Dhabi
Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Zayed was appointed the governor of the Eastern Region of Abu Dhabi in 1946, and was based in the Muwaiji fort in Al Ain. At this time, the area was poor and prone to outbreaks of disease. When parties from Petroleum Development (Trucial Coast) began exploring for oil in the area, Zayed assisted them.
