"The Infernal Kingdom"

Joesten, Joachim
August 1954
New Republic;8/16/54, Vol. 131 Issue 7, p7
This article presents information on Hadj Thami el Glaoui, the Pasha of Marrakech, Morocco. For more than 40 years now, the Glaoui has been an immovable fixture in Moroccan politics. This is not to say that he could not be legally removed. A pasha, in Morocco, does not rule in his own right and his office is not hereditary. The pashas are governors of big cities, appointed and removed by the Sultan. In almost every other city of Morocco, the turnover in pashas has been regular and heavy. But not in Marrakech. There in spite of a record that cries out for dismissal and punishment, the Glaoui has ruled, and continues to rule as though he were the absolute monarch of an independent nation.
