History - King Faruk




1920 February: Born in Cairo.
1936: At the death of his father, Ahmed Fuad, Faruk becomes king. He is yet not invested with royal authority.
1938 February: When turning 18, Faruk gets full royal power as king.
1940: With the outbreak of the 2nd World War, Faruk tries to keep Egypt neutral, a position that proves problematic as Egypt had at the same time a military treaty with Britain, and there were many Italian advisors to Faruk (Britain and Italy were enemies in this war).
1942: Britain forces Faruk to appoint a pro-British prime minister, which proves to be destructive to Faruk's authority inside Egypt.
1945: Faruk is central in the establishment of the Arab League.
1950: Faruk allows general elections in an attempt to regain his position on the national arena.
