Encyclopedia > Khedive of Egypt

Khedive (from Persian for 'lord') was a title created in 1867 by the Ottoman Sultan Abd-ul-Aziz for the then-governor of Egypt, Ismail Pasha. Ismail's son Tewfik Pasha inherited the title, as did Tewfik's son Abbas. Abbas was deposed by the British in 1914, and the title ended with him.

The HMS Khedive was the United States Navy escort aircraft carrier USS Cordova renamed; the ship was loaned to the Royal Navy during World War II.

Egypt's periodic interludes of disunity were politically disorderly and economically painful in part because inherent problems and contradictions (for example, obvious weakness in "perfect" institutions such as kingship) came to the surface and demanded solutions.
