The country was founded in 1705 by the Bani Utbah tribe. The country benefited from its pearls. During the 1920s, Kuwait was recognized as a province distinct from Iraq. Under the Anglo-Ottoman Convention, it was given autonomy.
With the advent of artificial cultivation of pearls, the country’s economy almost collapsed. This was because it was heavily dependent on pearls.
But in 1938, oil was discovered in Kuwait. This would help bring its economy back to its feet. In 1941, Britain took control of Kuwait. In 1961, Kuwait became independent. After Iraq occupied Kuwait in 1990, the United States led several counties in an effort to free the country.
