 Abdelaziz of Morocco - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Abdelaziz of Morocco (also known as Mulai Abd-al-Aziz IV) (1878 - 1943) (Arabic: عبد العزيز الرابع) succeeded his father Hassan I of Morocco as the sultan of Morocco from 1894 at the age of ten until he was deposed in 1908.
Such was the condition of things when the news of the Anglo-French Agreement of 1904 came as a blow to Abd-el-Aziz, who had relied on England for support and protection against the inroads of France.
The sultan gave his adherence to the Act of the Algeciras Conference, but the state of anarachy into which Morocco fell during the latter half of 1906 and the beginning of 1907 showed that the young ruler lacked strength sufficient to make his will respected by his turbulent subjects.
