Saeed Bin Maktoum Bin Hasher Al Maktoum

Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum bin Hasher Al Maktoum (1878–1958) (Arabic: سعيد بن مكتوم آل مكتوم‎) was the Ruler of Dubai from 1912 until his death in 1958.

In 1929, he was briefly deposed and succeeded by Sheikh Mani bin Rashid, a distant uncle. He was restored three days later and reigned until his death in 1958.

He is the grandfather of the current ruler Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (b. 1949) and father of Emirates Airline chairman Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

His third son is Khalifa bin Saeed Al Maktoum

Although Dubai (and other surrounding areas) fell under an economic depression in the 1920s (due to its great reliance on pearling), he managed, with the help of a progressive trade policy, to raise Dubai's economics and limit the reliance on pearling. He was succeeded by Rashid II bin Said Al Maktoum.
