Under the Antonine dynasty, a Venus temple was built there.Before the French protectorate, there was only a kasbah in the area where the modern city can today be found.Colonial and recent historyIn March 1912 the French government and the Sultan of Morocco, Abd al-Hafid, signed the Treaty of Fez. Because of his growing unpopularity, the Sultan asked the French government for protection against the Berber rebel tribes surrounding Fez.
