Historic Information

 

The recorded history of Morocco begins with the Phoenician colonization of the Moroccan coast between the 8th and 6th centuries BCE, although the area was inhababited by the indigenous Berbers for some two thousand years before that. Archaeological evidence has shown that the area was   inhabited by hominids at least 400,000 years ago. Morocco was conquered by Muslims in the early 8th century AD but broke away from Umayyad Caliphate after the berber revolt of 740. Half a century late the Moroccan state was established by the Idrisid dynasty. Morocco dominated the Maghreb and Muslim Spain. The Saadi dynasty ruled the country from 1549 to 1659 followed by the Alaouites from 1667 onwards, who have since been the ruling dynasty of Morocco.
