The Anglo-Egyptian Sudan 1941

From: EGP460.00

Historically speaking, Sudan and Egypt were one nation, but were split apart in 1922 following Egypt’s independence from the Ottoman Empire with the help of the UK. After the revolution both the Sudanese and the Egyptians intended to restore the old nation and create the Kingdom of Egypt and Sudan. However, the United Kingdom refused, assumed control of Sudan and almost completely edged Egypt out by 1924.

On 16 October 1951, the Egyptian government abrogated and declared that Egypt and Sudan were legally united as the Kingdom of Egypt and Sudan, with King Farouk as their ruler. This didn’t last for long however, as eight months later, the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 overthrew King Farouk and the new revolutionary government under Gamal Abdel Nasser made Sudanese independence a priority.  Under continued pressure, the United Kingdom conceded to Nassers’ demands in 1953, with the governments of both Egypt and the United Kingdom agreeing to to grant Sudan independence in 1956. On 1 January 1956, Egyptian and British sovereignty over Sudan duly ended, and Sudan became independent.
