On March 30

On this day in ...
... 1912 (100 years ago today), the Treaty of Fez was signed between Morocco and France. In it, the sultan of Morocco ceded sovereignty to the French, and the portion of Morocco in light green at right became a protectorate of France. (map credit) This status would come to an end with Morocco's independence in 1956.
