ABSTRACT
The article focuses on French Premier Edgar Faure's effort to cope with the present crisis in Morocco. The exiled former sultan Sidi Mohammed ben Youssef is the focal point of the hatred and fear of the great French colons, the army, the top bureaucracy, the "little whites" of the protectorate and their powerful allies in France. The Europeanized intellectuals of the nationalist movement and the primitive barbarians of the Atlas tribes insist that at least he must give his "royal" sanction to any compromise. The choice for Faure in the middle has been between exile in a provincial town in Madagascar and a return in triumph to his throne in the Moroccan capital.
