Egypt, formerly a province of the Turkish empire, became independent in 1811. By the Imperial Hatti-Schériff of Jan. 12, 1841, confirmed by the firman of June 1, 1841, the Government of Egypt is hereditary in the family of Mehemet Ali. The independent position of the rulers of Egypt was greatly enlarged by the Imperial firman of May 14, 1867, establishing the direct succession of the descendants of Mehemet Ali, and conferring upon them the title of ‘Khedeve,’ the Arabic equivalent of ‘King.’
