The newspapers reported that “this day with sound of Trumpet and great solemnity, his Excellence was proclaimed Protector of the Three Nations…by a Serjeant at Arms at the Exchange in London, the Lord Mayor, Aldermen and Common Councel being present, and in several other places of the City of London and in Westminster”.

  Protectorate - LoveToKnow 1911
Protectorate may mean no more than what it says: " One state agrees to protect or guarantee the safety of another." The term is also employed to describe any relation of a political superior to an inferior state.
The creation of a protectorate is convenient for the superior and the inferior; it relieves the former from the full responsibilities incident to annexation; it spares to some extent the feelings of the latter.
Protectorates also exist in the Western Pacific group of islands (including the Friendly Islands, the Ellice and Gilbert group, and the British Solomon Islands).

  Protectorate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Protectorates differ from League of Nations Mandates, and similar United Nations Trust Territories, which gave in practice similar authority to "responsible" Western powers or Japan in various areas of the non-European world over former colonial possessions (including protectorates) of the losers in World Wars I viz.
Persons connected with former British protectorates, protected states, mandated or trust territories may still be British protected persons if they did not acquire the nationality of their country at independence.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Protectorate of Missions
The object of the protectorate may be more or less extensive, according as it embraces only the missionaries who are subjects of the protecting power, or applies to the missionaries of all nations or even to their neophytes, the native Christians.
In 1848 the Austrian Protectorate was extended to the mission of the Sudan and Nigritia, which was in the care of Austrian priests; apparently for this reason, when the Coptic Catholic hierarchy was restored in Egypt by Leo XIII (1895), the new patriarch and his suffragans placed themselves under the protection of Austria.
The protectorate, it is said, is unwillingly tolerated by the authorities of infidel countries; it embitters the antipathy and hatred excited by the Christians in those countries, and causes the missionaries, who rely on its support, to be insufficiently mindful of the sensibilities of the natives and on their guard against excessive zeal.

 Bechuanaland Protectorate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bechuanaland Protectorate (BP) was a protectorate established on March 31, 1885 by Britain in southern Africa.
In 1891 administration of the protectorate was given to the High Commissioner for South Africa; in 1895 the British South Africa Company attempted to acquire the area, but three Tswana chiefs visited London to protest and were successful in fending off the BSAC.
Three stamps in 1960 commemorated the 75th anniversary of the protectorate, then in 1961 Bechuanaland converted to the South African rand, necessitating surcharges on the existing definitives in February, followed by a new definitive series in October that was mostly pictures of birds, with some showing people at work.

What the idea of a protectorate excludes, and the idea of annexation, on the other hand, would include, is that absolute ownership which was signified by the word dominium in Roman law, and which, though not quite satisfactorily, is sometimes described as territorial sovereignty.
The creation of a protectorate is convenient for the superior and the inferior; it relieves the former from the full responsibilities incident to annexation; it spares to some extent the feelings of the latter.
Strictly speaking, a protectorate cannot exist over a domain uninhabited or ruled by no organized state; in such cases the elements of the true protectorates are wanting.

 Pyramid: The Protectorate-American War, Part III
Orbital assaults on Protectorate holdings were suspended, U.S. and Protectorate surface fleets set course for widely-separated friendly bases, and Protectorate regulars on U.S. soil surrendered to await repatriation to their homeland.
As Protectorate generals well knew, there was not much chance of success if the war went that direction; the United States had won in both military and economic conflicts (World War II and the Cold War) by simply out-producing its opponents, a strategy that was very likely to work again.
The Protectorate attempted to "hedgehog," drawing in on itself and depending upon "neutral" nations that had been economically pressured into joining forces with the Protectorate for supply, hoping that the U.S. would not fire on neutral vessels.

 protectorate on Encyclopedia.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
PROTECTORATE [protectorate] in international law, a relationship in which one state surrenders part of its sovereignty to another.
A protectorate is distinguishable from the relation of home country and colony, for the protected state retains its sovereignty (though often only nominally), its territory remains distinct from that of the protector, and its citizens do not become nationals of the protecting state.
The former trust territories of the United Nations (see trusteeship, territorial) were distinguished from protectorates in that they were being prepared for ultimate independence and that the control of the dominant state was subject to scrutiny by the UN Trusteeship Council.

 The protectorate, a way to dominate, by Andeja Zivkovic
Yet the protectorate, a modern form of colonialism, risks putting a seal of approval on the ethnic partitioning of the province.
Yet taking the outcome in Bosnia alone, the most recent of the protectorates set up by the West after the Dayton accords of November 1995, we see that where peace and democracy are concerned things do not always work out as they are meant to.
Any protectorate placed under the sovereignty of an independent state and at the same time cut off from that state by the actions of external forces has always been bound to create more than merely an autonomous province - possibly an independent state, though one bereft of sovereign attributes.

 AN INTERNATIONAL PROTECTORATE FOR THE WEST BANK AND GAZA STRIP?
Among the protectorate's specific tasks would be to assist the Palestinians in restoring basic services, reviving civil society, and rebuilding national institutions, with the explicit end of fostering the establishment of an independent, democratic Palestinian state after, say, three-to-five years.
The third tier, the Protectorate administration, would be divided between the civil and security tasks, with military personnel drawn from countries assented to by both the Palestinians and the Israelis.
Failing this, the Protectorate idea should be further developed and held in reserve against the future collapse of the roadmap.

According to Rabie, the protectorate management coordinates with both the airport and the seaport to make violation control more efficient: "Tourists who are arrested with corals can face a fine of up to LE5,000, as well as a court case." But money shortage will often result in a shortage of manpower, he says.
While protectorate brochures instruct the tourists to take nothing with them and leave nothing behind, solid waste is nonetheless accumulating.

 Madagascar Protectorate (1885-1896)
The flag is a horizontal blue-white-red tri-band, with a red crescent facing the fly and shifted to the hoist in the white band.
During this period, Madagascar was a de facto protectorate (not formally recognized by England for instance) although de jure a kingdom.

In particular, there are Klk'k, Purth, and non-Andolian human citizens of the Protectorate (the non-Andolian humans mostly being non-integrationist members of annexed entities or yet to be integrated immigrants to the Protectorate from other polities).
The Andolian Protectorate was created by the Andolians as the political entity controlling both Andolian and Klk'k interests.
During the formation of the Confederation, there was some consolidation of minor factions, bringing an influx of non-Andolian humans into the Protectorate (an extremely small minority of the human population born into the Protectorate remains non-Andolian - less than 1% of the total human population).

Albanian refugees returned home in record-breaking time and, thanks to the combined efforts of international-aid agencies and the resourcefulness of the local inhabi-tants, the reconstruction of destroyed homes has been infinitely more rapid than it was in Bosnia.
If, however, the goals were more long-term, if the inter-national community hoped to establish a climate of internal security, the rule of law, and respect for minorities, then the operation remains a partial failure, even in the eyes of the international authorities- KFOR, the NATO-led peacekeeping force, and UNMIK, the UN administration-which run the region.
Finally, neighboring Montenegro, under President Milo Djukanovic, oscillates between flirtations with secession (witness the adoption of the deutsche mark as a parallel currency and calls for a referendum on a confederal status) and the threat of a military coup staged by Milosevic's army.

 French Protectorate of Morocco (1912-1946)
Morocco was theoretically an independent state under protectorate, with its own flag and administration, “advised” by a Resident-General.
According to Neubecker’s Flaggenbuch [neu92], the flag with the French Tricolore in canton was the civil ensign, not the national flag.
This is not illogical, since the French protectorates of Morocco and Tunisia were theoretically independent states which had “required” the generous protection of France (as opposed to Algeria, which was part of the French Republic and had not required anything).
