Qatar Background

The Al Khalifa family migrated to Qatar from Kuwait in 1766, and then moved on to rule Bahrain Island.

The Qataris were against their rule, but with the support of Abu Dhabi, in 1867, the Al Khalifa saw off the Qataris and razed the city of Doha.

The British installed the Al Thani's as rulers of Qatar in an attempt to control piracy off the coast.

Qatar became a British protectorate, in 1916, although the Al Thani's continued to rule as absolute monarchs.

When the British left the Gulf region, in 1971, Qatar was accorded full independence.
