    What is a sheikdom?

    A sheikdom is a type of monarchy in which a ruling sheik and his or her advisers exercise executive power over a territory. The territory may be small or large, but it is usually located in the middle of a Arab or Islamic region.

    Sheikdoms have a long history. The first sheikdom was the Hamdanid dynasty in Shi'ite Iraq in the late 10th century. Sheikdoms became more common after the fragmentation of the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century. They often sprang up when European powers divided Arab lands into protectorates.
