In 1891 Oman became a
British protectorate. British influence continued to grow, with the British aiding the
sultanate in putting down desert rebellions in the 1950's. In 1971 the British withdrew from
the Gulf & Oman was no
longer under the protectorate. In 1970 the Sultan was overthrown by
his son, Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who remains
the leader of Oman today.
