The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is located in Africa and the Middle East, on the Arabian Penisula. It borders Jordan to the northwest, Iraq to the north and northeast, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates to the east, Oman to the southeast, and Yemen to the south. The Persian Gulf is to its northeast, and the Red Sea to its west.
King Khalid Bin Abd Al-Aziz ruled the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 1975 - 1982.
In 1977, Princess Misha'al bint Fahd al Saud (1958-1977) was executed. Some say she was slain in secret by her family. They say she was a victim of an Honor Killing (Sharia), for commiting adultery with her lover, on the orders of her grandfather, Prince Muhammad bin Abdul Aziz, older brother of King Khalid Bin Abd Al-Aziz of Saudi Arabia.
Others say she and her lover were tried in a Saudi Court of Law, and sentenced to death, per the Islamic law for adultery. We do not know, and probably will never know which is the truth about her death. Princess Misha'al was only 19 when she died.
