British Mandate of Iraq
The British Mandate of Iraq was a League of Nations Mandate created when the Ottoman Empire was divided by the Treaty of Versailles following World War I. Four mandate territories were made, with the rest of the territory, with the exception of Turkey placed under monarchies. The British controlled the Mandates of Palestine and Iraq, while the French controlled the Mandates of Lebanon and Syria. Iraq was granted independence by Britain in 1932 as a monarchy ruled by King Faisal.
