But Egypt’s long-held and tenuous position as a province of the Ottoman Empire makes it difficult to define Egyptian expansionism under Muhammad `Alï. While it is easy to identify and date all of Muhammad `Alï’s expansionist expeditions (to the Hijaz, 1811–1818; the Sudan, 1820–1822; the Morea, 1824–1827; and Syria, 1831–1840), many scholars of Egyptian history are much more ambivalent about the nature of these conquests, especially with regard to the Sudan. Part of the ambiguity stems from what many scholars consider the changing nature of Egypt’s own national identity that, in turn, altered the shape of its expansionism.
