Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Morocco to Ukraine held a reception in honour of the Throne Day.

Author: 31.07.2015 | diplomacy, ambassador, Marocco
Kiev hosted the diplomatic reception organized by the Embassy of Morocco in Ukraine and dedicated to one of the main Moroccan national holiday - the Throne Day.

The guests at the event were greeted by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of Morocco H.E. Mina Tunsi. The reception was attended by the ambassadors of foreign countries such as Georgia, Iraq, Kuwait, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, South Africa and others, as well as diplomats, public and cultural figures, and representatives of the clergy.

The Throne Day is one of public holidays in Morocco, and in the region of Western Sahara. Since 1999 it has been celebrated on July 30, the anniversary of the ascent to the throne of the King of Morocco Mohammed VI.

The royal family of Morocco belongs to the Alaouite dynasty, which was founded by Mulay Al-Rashid Ibn Sharif who in 1666 proclaimed himself as the Sultan of Morocco and thereby put an end to the Saadi Dynasty.

The Throne Day was established after Morocco gained independence, when the country had abolished the title of Sultan and instead introduced the title of King. During the reign of the King Mohammed V (till 1961) the holiday was celebrated on November 18, during the reign of Hassan II (1961 to 1999) - on March 3, and after ascending to the throne of Mohammed VI holiday date was moved to July 30.

In fact, Mohamed VI became king of Morocco on July 23, 1999, on the day of death of his father Hassan II. However, the official enthronement ceremony took place a week later, on 30 July. This date is now celebrated in Morocco as the Throne Day.
