Qatar has been ruled by the House of Thani since the early 19th century.
Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani was the founder of the State of Qatar.
The Al Khalifa imposed their authority over Bahrain and extended their area of jurisdiction to Qatar.
In 1825, the House of Thani was established with Sheikh Mohammed bin Thani as the first leader.
Although Qatar had the legal status of a dependency, there was a popular sentiment of resentment against the Al Khalifa.
The results of the negotiations left the nation with a new-found sense of political identity, although it did not gain an official standing as a protectorate until 1916.
Despite the disapproval of local tribes, Al Thani continued supporting Ottoman rule.
In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt, among other Gulf states, cut off diplomatic relations with Qatar, accusing it of supporting and funding terrorism and manipulating internal affairs of its neighboring states, an escalation of longstanding tensions with Saudi Arabia.
