MOROCCO / MAROC / Al-Magrib


(former French, Spanish & British Morocco & French and Spanish Tangier)

Morocco -
was invaded by Arabs in the 7th century. Conflicting French and Spanish interests in the region in the 19th century led to the Treaty of Fez, 1912, establishing Spanish Morocco (capital, Tetouan) and French Morocco (capital, Rabat). Tangier became an international zone from 1923 to 1956. The protectorates gained independence, 1956, and became the Kingdom of Morocco, 1957. The Spanish withdrew from former Spanish Sahara in 1975 and Morocco laid claim to the area. Postage stamps have been issued from 1891 (French Morocco), 1898 (British Morocco), 1903 (Spanish Morocco), 1918 (Tangier, French), 1929 (Tangier, Spanish) and 1956 (Morocco).
