Oman succeeded [[Portugal]] as a power in the western [[Indian Ocean]] in the eighteenth century. In the late 18th century, Muscat signed a series of friendship treaties with [[Great Britain]] but it never became a British colony. In the 1950's Britain would aid in suppressing uprisings by the rebellious interior tribes. In 1970 Sultan Said bin Taimus was overthrown by his son to free the country from his father's oppressive rule. Qaboos bin Said al-Said has ruled as Sultan since then.
