Brief History of Kuwait

The founder of the al-Sabah dynasty became sheikh, in 1756.

Kuwait was briefly a part of the Ottoman Empire, until 1899; when the British stepped in, at the request of the reigning emir.

In the early 1920's the northern and southern borders of Kuwait were properly established, after raids from the Saudi Arabian province of Najd saw the British come to the emirate's aid again.

Kuwait gained full independence on June 19th, 1961, with its sheikh taking the title of emir, and formal British protection  was ended.

From August 1990 to February 1991, Saddam Hussein restated Iraq's historical claim to Kuwait and occupied the region as Iraq's 19th province.

Allied troops stormed the desert to liberate the country and plug its leaking oil.

Kuwait City

The capital, Kuwait City, dates from 1710; when Anizah migrants from the central Arabian Peninsula set up shop there.

The city's drinking water is contained in two large minaret-style storage tanks.

Radio Kuwait:
Offers real audio clips, twice a day if you want to catch up on the news.
