Notes: The above information (except for the birthdate, which is an Al Khamsa estimate) is from the RAS History p63. Venus is referenced as the dam of Hadba (KDV) in the 1932 official RAS pedigree for *Bint Bint Durra. Entries #9443 and #10811 of the Raswan Index describes Venus (with alternate names of Yunis, Hadba and Shekra Zefra) as sired by a Kuhaylan Ajuz stallion and bred by a Yunis clan of the Zawba' section of the Shammar tribe. Al Khamsa has been unable to verify a Yunis clan.
