What British protectorate was given independence in 1922, but remained subordinate to British power until 1954?
The British Empire controlled a myriad of colonies and protectorates. The empire granted indepence to some territories following WWI, while maintaining economic control in the areas. The financial loss during WWII as well as nationalist/decolonization movements throughout the world forced the hand of the once powerful empire, leading to independence throughout. Egypt was an important location for GB due to the Suez Canal, a very important and busy waterway, located between Africa and the Middle East.
