Abstract

The series "The twentieth Century Morocco" is a documentary program dealing with the history of the Kingdom of Morocco in the twentieth century. It also illustrates the political, geographical and social developments in the Kingdom at that time. This episode is about a critical period in the Kingdom's history. In 1890, the Algesiras Conference encouraged the French and Spanish ambitions to occupy Morocco and and share it. Then, Morocco started losing its sovereignty over ports and coastal cities, and from 1907, France controlled financial and diplomatic affairs. In an attempt to repel the French penetration, the Moroccans rose up against their Sultan Moulay Abdelaziz and pledged their allegiance to his brother, Moulay Abdelhafidh. But that did not prevent the French military intervention that ended with the signature of the protectorate treaty in 1912.
