Following World War I, a wide swath of the former Ottoman Empire (including Transjordan, later called Jordan), was placed under British mandate. In 1921 Britain appointed Abdullah ibn Hussein as emir of Jordan and two years later granted limited sovereignty to the territory. Britain ended the mandate in 1946 in exchange for Jordanian support during World War II. Jordan gained full independence and Emir Hussein was crowned King Abdullah I.
