History of Morocco

Early Morocco

After the Phoenecians established Morocco's first civilization, the Romans quickly conquered much of North Africa, including Morocco. Morocco remained under Roman rule until the 7th century.

Islam Arrives

Islam arrived in Morocco when Arabs invaded in the 7th century. After conquering the country, they expanded to Southern Spain but were gradually pused back. Morocco's first Muslim dynasties were established. The Kingdom of Mauritania also invaded Morocco, but Mauritanian control of Morocco was short-lived. Many dynasties ruled Morocco through the 18th and 19th centuries, although, Moroccan society remained mostly unchanged.

Protectorate and Modern Morocco

The French annexed Morocco and established a protectorate in the early 20th century. This was short lived, however, as Morocco gained independence after World War Two. Today, Morocco is one of the richest countries in Africa with a very strong and diverse economy. Its population is now nearing 40 million.
