Geschiedenis van Bahrein

Known in ancient times as Dilmun, Bahrain was an important center of trade by the 3rd millennium B.C. The islands were ruled by the Persians in the 4th century A.D., and then by Arabs until 1541, when the Portuguese invaded them. Persia again claimed Bahrain in 1602. In 1783 Ahmad ibn al-Khalifah took over, and the al-Khalifahs remain the ruling family today. Bahrain became a British protectorate in 1820. It did not gain full independence untill Aug. 14, 1971.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Bahrain's History  -  Wikipedia
Bahrain was once part of the ancient civilization of Dilmun and served as an important link in trade routes between Sumeria and the Indus Valley as long as 5,000 years ago.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Oil Well No.1  -  Oliebron nummer 1
As its name suggests, this is the first oil well in the Gulf. "Spurted" on 16th October 1931, the well finally began to blow heads of oil on the morning of 2nd June 1932, too much celebration on the part of those involved in the project. It is situated below jebel Dukhan, the Mountain of Smoke, which, at a height of 134 meters (450 feet), is the highest point of the island. Its name comes from the misty haze, which frequently surrounds it on a hot and humid day.


Sinds het toenemende nationalisme in de zestiger jaren in de diverse Arabische staten, is rond de juiste naamgeving van de Perzische Golf een namenstrijd tussen Iran en de Arabische staten ontstaan. Hoewel de laatste de naam 'Arabisch-Perzische Golf' voorstaan, houdt Iran vast aan de al lang bestaande naamgeving. De UNO gebruikt de naam Perziische Golf en beveelt aan om die vooralsnog te gebruiken.
