From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ahmed Bey ben Mohamed Chérif, also known as Ahmed Bey or Hadj Ahmed Bey (Arabic: الحاج أحمد باي‎) (c. 1784 - c. 1850) was the last Bey of Constantine, Algeria, ruling from 1826 to 1848.[1] He was the successor of Mohamed Menamenni Bey ben Khan.

As head of state, he led the local population in a fierce resistance to the French occupation forces.[2] In 1837 the territory was conquered by the French, who reinstated the Bey as ruler of the region. He remained in this position until 1848, when the region became a part of the colony of Algiers and the Bey was deposed.
