The life and struggles of King Hussein of Jordan, from the assassination of his grandfather to the rise of the PLO. King Hussein of Jordan: Survival Of A Dynasty is the first in a two-part series telling the story of Jordan's monarch from 1952 to his death in 1999. Hussein was just 15 when, in July 1951, his grandfather, King Abdullah I, the founder of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, was shot dead by a Palestinian gunman at the gate of al-Aqsa Mosque in eastern Jerusalem. Hussein witnessed the assassination, and in a radio interview later in his life described how it impacted him and his understanding of the dangers - as well as the responsibilities - facing a monarch.
