Updated: 25 October 2017
Morocco is a country with endless history. It is speculated that it was inhabited 300,000 years ago by early Homo sapiens. The location of Morocco was part of the Roman Empire in 33 BC and, in the 7th century AD, the Islamic conquest began. In the 15th century, the country was ruled by the Saadi Dynasty and the Alaouite Dynasty, who are still present with King Mohammed VI. In the early 20th century, the Spanish and French established a protectorate in Morocco, slavery was abolished in 1925, and Morocco finally regained its independence in 1956.
