Protectorate facts for kids
A protectorate is a part of a country, or maybe a tribe in one area, that is protected by another, larger and stronger country based on an agreement between the protectorate and the strong country. These were very common in the 1800s, especially in Africa, when European countries would give protection to small states or places there, and make money with the goods of the African place in exchange. The British Empire had many protectorates around the world.
