Princess Badia, daughter of King Ali, King of Hijaz, died earlier this week in London. She left but a memoir of her life and served as a symbol of the massacre in Iraq, which aimed at assassinating the late King Faisal and his family, ending the idea of any future monarchical rule in Iraq. 

Translation: “Princess Badia, daughter of King Ali, the King of Hejaz, died today, Princess Badia was the only survivor of the massacre of Rehab Palace in 1958 in Iraq, whose victim was King Faisal and his family. She issued notes to her talking about his assassination and their lives in Iraq.”

The heir to Shareef Hussein, who led the Great Arab Revolt in 1916, was the last survivor of the royal dynasty in Iraq. She published her memoir entitled Wareethat Al-Oroosh (the Thrones' Heir), where she talked in detail about the assassination of the late King Faisal and his family as well as the royal family's life in Iraq. 

Translation "The death of Princess Badia, the daughter of King Ali, the King of Hejaz, the last princess of the Hashemite royal family of Iraq, granddaughter of the Sharif Al-Hussein, the sister of Queen Alia bint Ali, sister of the trustee, was the only survivor of the massacre of Al-Rehab Palace in 1958 in Iraq, which ended the Hashemite rule in it."

Translation: "We mourn with further grief and sorrow Her Royal Highness Princess Badia, the daughter of King Ali, who has passed away this afternoon in the British capital London, and I extend to my honorable brothers Muhammad, Abdullah, Ali bin Al Hussein bin Prince Ali, the Hashemite family and Iraq the warmest feelings of condolence, asking God Almighty to grace her with his mercy."
