History of Morocco
The history of Morocco is an ancient country that has strong feelings of culture. Although Morocco’s ancient culture has influenced its people for centuries, it is diverse and appears to have been derived from many other ancient cultures. If you would like to know more about the history, progress, and impact of this country’s extraordinary culture, you will no doubt read our basic description below of Moroccan history.
The natives of Morocco were the Berber people. These people lived in large family tribes and there was no recognized government in the area. Instead, the tribal barbarians lived according to the principles of their tribal leaders, and the rules of one tribe may go far beyond the principles of the other tribe.
history of Morocco Due to a lack of authority,
Morocco continued to attack during the early stages of its development. The first invaders were Phoenicians in the twelfth century B.C. They successfully claimed numerous coastal settlements but were later conquered by the Carthaginians. In the second century BC, Carthaginians became the subject of a widespread Roman campaign, and soon all of their strongholds in the area changed. Over time, the Roman Empire collapsed, giving the Arabs the opportunity to take over. Short but intense battles to conquer the country between the Arabs and the Jews surrounded it and became largely unstable. Fortunately, a man by the name of Ahmad I Al-Mundra succeeded in strengthening the country during his reign. As a result, the country flourished between 1579 and 1603 when Jews and Moms came from Spain based in Morocco. They brought with them their own culture and art, and eventually, Morocco contributed much to the culture that still exists today.
In the early 15th century, a dispute between the Spanish and the Portuguese took control of the Port of Sita in 1415. However, in 1578, Moroccans rose against the Portuguese and regained control of this port. It was the beginning of a nationwide war that resulted in Morocco reclaiming almost all the coastal cities that came to power in Portugal, which remained in France until the 1700s. In 1911, Germany sent a gunboat to a French-owned Moroccan coastline in which to claim something for itself. Fortunately, the war was stopped when the French made a treaty with Germany under which the French would take control of Morocco, wherever they gave German privileges.
history of Morocco In 1950, the Sultan of Morocco requested that Morocco become a free country. His initial request was rejected. In 1957, Sultan Mohammad became king. This opened the way for independence and it was not too late that Spain withdrew its majority occupation in Morocco.
In 1974, King Hassan launched a major campaign to re-occupy the entire Sahara – most of which was still owned by Spain. The International Court of Justice dismisses Morocco’s request for complete control over the Sahara. However, Shah Hassan was permanent and was nevertheless pushed forward. Finally, after secretly negotiating, Spain and Morocco reached an agreement. The Sahara was divided into three parts: Morocco, Spain, and Mauritania. In 1978, the Polisario Front was forced to leave Mauritania out of the Sahara, but Morocco collapsed and remained unharmed. The United Nations organized a referendum for the right to self-determination among the concerned people, and while it was generally agreed, Morocco has still continued to seek full control over the entire desert. On Friday, July 23, 1999, King Hassan died. His death concluded the longest monarchy in the modern history of the Arab world with a total of 38 years. Currently, King Hassan’s son Crown Prince Sidi Mohammed rules Morocco as the 18th king in the Alawite Dynasty.
