Egypt, formerly a province of the Turkish empire, became independent in 1811. By the Imperial Hatti-Schériff of Jan. 12, 1841, confirmed by the firman of June 1, 1841, the government of Egypt is hereditary in the family of Mehemet Ali. His descendants bear the title of Viceroy. The law of succession is the same as in the imperial house of Turkey.
