During 1904, Morocco is the source of conflict by the powers of Imperial Germany, France, and the British Empire, all of whom are trying to establish a sphere of influence in that country. Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli is the commander of a band of Berber insurrectionists opposed to Sultan Abdelaziz and his uncle, the Bashaw (Pasha) of Tangier, whom Raisuli considers as corrupt and beholden to the Europeans. He kidnaps Eden Perdicaris and her children, William and Jennifer, from their home, after murdering Sir Joshua Smith, a British friend of Eden's. Raisuli then issues an outrageous ransom demand, deliberately attempting to provoke an international incident in order to embarrass the Sultan and start a civil war.
