        I enjoyed meeting the King, he was quite a tough character in his time. He took Riyadh with 30 men, attacking the garrison of 80 Turkish soldiers with six men. They killed Ajlan, the Rashidi governor, and drove the rest under cover, while the balance of his men came over the wall and took the defenders from the rear.
