Born as the son of Abdul Rahman bin Faisal Al Saud, the last ruler of the Second Saudi State, he consolidated his control over his ancestral lands and became the ruler of nearly all of central Arabia. He then unified his dominions into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932 and became the first monarch of the consolidated nation.
