About this item

Content

This file contains correspondence related to tensions between Bahrain (and the Al Naim tribe) and Qatar concerning the ownership of Zubarah 18th-century town located 105 km from Doha. on the Qatar peninsula that took place between March and June 1937.

At this time, the Al Naim tribe were allied to the Al Khalifa ruling family of Bahrain who claimed Zubarah 18th-century town located 105 km from Doha. as a part of their own territory (the family had been based there before their conquest of Bahrain in 1783). The British authorities did not recognise the Al Khalifa's claim to Zubarah 18th-century town located 105 km from Doha. and mediated between the two sides. The file contains extensive details of this mediation process.
