Collection titleTwentieth century Morocco
First broadcast date06/02/2004
AbstractOn March 30th, 1912, the Sultan Abdelhafidh signed the document stating Morocco as a French and Spanish Protectorate. That was followed by an uprising in the city of Fes and its neighboring tribes. The French troops intervention to restrain the uprising led to a great number of victims. So as to restore order, France established regulations for a new system of governance in Morocco : the capital was moved from Fes to Rabat, the Sultan Abelhafidh was removed and replaced by Moulay Youcef. As to the northern part occupied by Spain, after quelling the resistance of the rural tribes led by Cherif Ameziane, Moulay El Mahdi was appointed successor to the Sultan in Tetouan, the capital of the northern region, in 1913.
