Uday Hussein was born in Baghdad.He was the eldest child of Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and his first wife and cousin, Sajida Talfah.

Uday was seen for several years as the likely successor to his father but lost the place as heir apparent to his younger brother, Qusay, due to injuries in an assassination attempt.

Following the United States-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, he was killed alongside Qusay and his nephew Mustafa by an American task force after a prolonged gunfight in Mosul.

Uday was reportedly erratically ruthless and intimidating to perceived adversaries as well as to close friends.Family relatives and personal acquaintances were often victims of his violence and rage.
