From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mohammed Ben Aarafa, or Ben Arafa (1889 - 1976) was a distant relative of Sultan Mohammed V of Morocco (Arabic: محمد بن عرفة بن محمد‎); he was put in Mohammed V's place by the French after they exiled Mohammed V to Madagascar.

Ben Aarafa was installed in August 1953, he abdicated in October 1955, while Mohammed V was still in exile.

Protests against Ben Aarafa helped lead to Moroccan independence, which was agreed to between France and Mohammed V in 1955. He died in 1976 in France.
