Lawrence of Arabia: The Secret Deal
World History → World War I → The Sykes-Picot Agreement
King Faisal tells British authorities that he is aware of their intention to divide Ottoman lands between themselves and the French. The authorities deny this intention, and T.E. Lawrence denies having knowledge of this secret deal. Once King Faisal leaves the room, one of the authorities explains the Sykes-Picot Agreement to T.E. Lawrence. The agreement would eventually create the borders of the modern Middle East.
