Overview
Madini and T'hami El Glaoui, sons of a Moroccan caid by an Ethiopian concubine, rose meteorically to power in the almost medieval state of Morocco at the end of the nineteenth century. This is the epic story of the more than fifty years in which they governed the country in barbaric, ostentatious splendor, until their spectacular downfall in 1956.

Out of the intriguing and dramatic lives of Madini and T'hami, Gavin Maxwell has fashioned an epic story set against the superb background of Marrakesh and the pinnacled castles of the High Atlas, still magnificent as crumbling ruins. A dramatic history of intrigue, action, and exotic places, and illustrated with over one hundred color illustrations and photographs, "Lords of the Atlas" is a stunning look at the rise and fall of one of the twentieth century's most fascinating rulers.
