What is now Jordan has been inhabited by humans since the Paleolithic period.

Three stable kingdoms emerged there at the end of the Bronze Age: Ammon, Moab and Edom.

Sunni Islam, practiced by around 92% of the population, is the dominant religion in Jordan. Jordan is considered to be among the safest of Arab countries in the Middle East, and has avoided long-term terrorism and instability.

(Woods told Time last December in a no-holds-barred story that the situation was "too tough" but they remain "best friends" as they coparent their kids, Sam and Charlie.) He subsequently dated Lindsey Vonn for three years, but the two split in 2015.

Jordan captured the West Bank during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War and the name of the state was changed to The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in 1949.

Jordan is a founding member of the Arab League and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and is one of two Arab states to have signed a peace treaty with Israel.
