An avid observer of history and the many cross-cultural connections it unearths, Rehan Khan has always been intrigued by how ideas move from one civilisation to the next. Throughout his travels, what fascinates him most are the narratives, myths, and legends which unite cultures, as opposed to dividing them. He is the author of A King’s Armour (2020) and A Tudor Turk (2019), which was nominated for the Carnegie Medal in 2020. These novels have been described as Mission Impossible in the sixteenth century.
When not writing, Rehan works in the telecoms sector. He has a monthly column in Gulf Business. Previously he was a visiting professor at HULT International Business School (2013-16), and a business columnist at The National (2009-10). Rehan holds a master’s degree in applied social and market research, as well as an MBA in strategy. He lives in Dubai with his family.
