After the Napoleonic wars, the years 1815-1841 saw a consolidation of British maritime domination of the Mediterranean, the French occupation of Algiers, and Ottoman manoeuvres to counter these trends. The impact of these developments on the slave trade is examined in chapter 4. During this period, Tunisian beys' heavy borrowing from European merchants culminated in the imperious European intervention in the politics and economy of Tunis, which greatly affected European influence in the flow of slaves from the Regency to Ottoman domains.
