Its low walls and inner courtyard left no place to hide for Mehdi Mnebhi, defence minister during Sultan Moulay Abdelaziz’s troubled 1894–1908 reign. While Minister Mnebhi was away receiving a medal from Queen Victoria, England conspired with France and Spain to colonise North Africa. In Mnebhi’s absence, autocrat Pasha Glaoui filched his palace – but after independence, it was seized by the state and became Marrakesh’s first girls’ school in 1965.
