Abstract:In 1844 a treaty was signed between France and Said bin Sultan, ruler of Muscat and Zanzibar. This allowed France to enjoy an important role in the region's political and economic life. However, by 1868, the position of France in Zanzibar was scarcely tenable. Desire for nonintervention kept the French in a secondary role on the island, leaving Zanzibar and the adjacent areas on the mainland to fall with only minor French dissent to later British and German colonial rulers. The article describes in detail the negotiations between France and Zanzibar in the intervening period. Notes.
