Description

The country of Jordan was created out of the carving up of the Middle East by the British. Most of it had been Palestine. It was something of a sop to the Hashemi family, who had wanted to rule in Arabia, but the Saudis won. An attempt by a Hashemi to create a “Greater Syria” failed, the British moved him to Iraq and made him king there. A brother was set up in Jordan. The descendants have run the country since.
