muhammad vi

Hours after the death of King Hassan II of Morocco on July 23, 1999, his oldest son took the throne as Muhammad VI. The new king thus joined two other young rulers of the Arab world-King Abdullah II of Jordan (q.v.), who was a personal friend, and Sheikh Hamad ibn Isa al-Khalifah of Bahrain-who assumed power in 1999 upon the deaths of their fathers.
