In his autobiography, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom TE calls Lawrence him the greatest fighters in northern Arabia.

Despite, or by a nearly successful attempt at bribery by the Ottomans in 1918 Auda was one of the biggest supporters of Arab independence. After the collapse of the Arab government, he returned to his home country on the course of Wadi Rum and was a palace built by Ottoman prisoners of war. Prior to the completion of the building he died in 1924.

In David Lean's film Lawrence of Arabia, he was portrayed by Anthony Quinn.
