The First Moroccan Crises 1905-06

Countries involved








The Kaiser wanted Morocco, 'A place in the sun'

and he did not want the French empire to extend

or the Entante Cordiale to get stronger


The Crises took place in Morocco

However, the conference in which France was given Morocco took place in Algeciras, Spain

In February 1905, France demanded control over the Moroccan army and police

the Sultan (leader of Morocco) refused

What happend?

France wanted Morocco

Britain backed France

the Kaiser wanted to split the Entante Cordiale, as he did not want to see France complete the French Empire

France was given Morocco

so the Kaiser suffered an embarassing defeat

Also, the Kaiser visited the Moroccan port Tangiers

and gave a speech about how it should stay independent


There was already background tension and rivalry

especially Imperialism, Kaiser Wilhelm wanted 'a place in the sun'

Morocco was weak

France hoped to conquer it

In 1903, France based an army on the Moroccan border
