In March 1911, French authorities claimed rebel tribes staged an uprising in Morocco, endangering one of the country’s capital cities, Fez.
The sultan appealed to France for help restoring order, which led the French to send their troops to Fez on May 21.
Germany, however, wary of French power in Africa, believed the French had created the tribal revolt to create an excuse to occupy Morocco.
Though, as in the First Moroccan Crisis, Germany had counted on France’s isolation and eventual submission, this did not prove to be the case, as Britain once again backed France, its partner in the Entente Cordiale of 1904.
After Russia too gave its support to France and Austria-Hungary failed to give Germany even its support, the Germans were forced to back down.
Meanwhile, military talks began between the British and French, and it was decided that their two navies would divide responsibilities, with the French taking control of the Mediterranean and the British the North Sea and the English Channel.
