Sharif Sharaf bin Rajeh
Born in Taif in 1881, Sharif Sharaf bin Rajeh fought in the Aseer campaign before World War I. He then succeeded his father as Taif emir in 1915. After the Turkish fortress surrendered, he moved to the war theatre in Medina Munawara, and fought battles around it, leading a number of campaigns against railroad stations. After Prince Faisal bin Al Hussein moved to Aqaba in August 1917, Sharif Sharaf remained in Al Wajh area and became first assistant to the Revolt army command.
When Turkish commander Fakhri Pasha and his army surrendered in early 1919, Sharaf led the Arab force that entered Medina Munawara, returning afterwards to Taif, where he took over as emir. He then moved to Iraq and served as regent for a while, before moving to Amman at an invitation by King Abdullah, where he was appointed in the Jordanian Senate between the years 1950 and 1955.
