Council in 1662, taking roles on the Foreign Affairs (Foreign policy) Committee, the Admiralty Committee and the Tangier Committee. Kitson, p.138. Accounts vary of Rupert's role in all these committees of government. Samuel Pepys, no friend of Rupert's, sat on the Tangier Committee with him and later declared that all Rupert did was to laugh and swear occasionally: other records, such as those of the Foreign Affairs Committee, show him taking a full and active role in proceedings. right thumb ''Rodney's Fleet Taking in Prizes After the Moonlight Battle, 16 January 1780'', by Dominic Serres (File:Moonlight battle Aftermath.jpg) (date unknown). The painting shows the British fleet with the captured Spanish squadron in the middle centre. alt The painting focuses on the morning after the battle when British ships surrounded the fleeing Spanish fleet. The scene is bathed in a golden glow of early morning light. The British flagship is in the centre, indicated by the flag flying from the mainmast. She is at the head of a line of British ships, shown in the act of capturing the Spanish squadron in the middle centre. Land can be seen in the distance on the left. The British reported their casualties in the battle as 32 killed and 102 wounded. The supply convoy sailed into Gibraltar on 19 January, driving the smaller blockading fleet to retreat to the safety of Algeciras. Rodney arrived several days later, after first stopping in Tangier. The wounded Spanish prisoners, who included Admiral Lángara, were offloaded there, and the British garrison was heartened by the arrival of the supplies and the presence of Prince William Henry. After also resupplying Minorca, Rodney sailed for the West Indies in February, detaching part of the fleet for service in the Channel (English Channel). This homebound fleet intercepted a French fleet destined for the East Indies, capturing one warship and three supply ships. Gibraltar was resupplied twice more before the siege was lifted at the end of the war (Treaty of Paris (1783)) in 1783. Chartrand, p. 31 When the book was published Waugh was serving in France, although he did not see action in the First World War (World War I) until Passchendaele (Battle of Passchendaele). He was subsequently captured by the Germans near Arras and spent the rest of the war in a prisoner-of-war camp in Karlsruhe. He went on to a career as a successful author, although never as successful or innovative as his younger brother. He lived much of his life overseas, in exotic places such as Tangier – a lifestyle made possible by his second marriage, to a rich Australian (Joan Chirnside). His work, possibly in consequence, tends to be reminiscent of Somerset Maugham, although without Maugham's huge popular success. Nevertheless, his 1957 novel ''Island in the Sun'' was a best-seller, as was his 1973 novel, ''A Fatal Gift''. According to his nephew Auberon (Auberon Waugh), Alec Waugh "wrote many books, each worse than the last." Joan Acocella, "Waugh Stories: Life in a Literary Dynasty," ''The New Yorker'', July 2, 2007. In North Africa and the Near East From Tangier, Barth made his way overland throughout the length of North Africa. He also traveled through Egypt, ascending the Nile to Wadi Halfa and crossing the desert to Berenice (Berenice (port)). While in Egypt he was attacked and wounded by robbers. Crossing the Sinai peninsula, he traversed Palestine, Syria, Asia Minor, Turkey and Greece, everywhere examining the remains of antiquity; and returned to Berlin in 1847. For a time he was engaged there as ''Privatdozent,'' and in preparing for publication the narrative of his ''Wanderungen durch die Küstenländer des Mittelmeeres'', which appeared in 1849. She obtained British nationality by marrying and divorcing Englishman James Turner in Beirut; Turner died a year later of alcoholism. Having made a point of not dealing in secrets belonging to H.M. Government, when she felt she had made enough money, she retired and moved to England and Willie Garvin followed suit. Bored by their new lives among the idle rich, they accepted a request for assistance from Sir Gerald Tarrant, a high-ranking official of the British Secret Service. This is where the story really begins, although it is treated differently in the first comic strip and the first book. (See note in ''Canon debate'' below).

While he is in Tangier, Alistair has Luis attacked and kidnapped, and holds him prisoner in the same Hawaiian compound that he had once used to house Rachel (Crane family#Rachel Barrett); Alistair then fakes Luis's death in October 2005. In August 1437, the Portuguese expeditionary force, under Henry's leadership, set out to seize Tangier. Ferdinand brought his household and Aviz knights with him. The campaign proved disastrous. Henry impetuously launched a series of assaults on the walls of Tangier with no success, while allowing his siege camp to be encircled by a Moroccan army rushed north by the Wattasid strongman Abu Zakariya Yahya al-Wattasi, governor of the Marinid palace of Fez (Fes, Morocco) (called ''Lazeraque'' by the Portuguese chroniclers). Unable to break out, the Portuguese expeditionary force was starved into submission. To preserve his army from destruction, Henry signed a treaty with the Moroccan ruler, agreeing to restore Ceuta (which had been captured by the Portuguese in 1415), in return for being allowed to withdraw his army unmolested. Henry handed his brother Infante Ferdinand over to the Moroccans as a hostage until the fulfillment of the treaty. Ferdinand was placed under house arrest first in Asilah, then later moved to Fez (Fez, Morocco). From a young age, Joan expressed a desire to become a nun; however, as she was second-in-line to the throne, her father did not allow it. During his military expedition to Tangier in 1471, Joan served as Regent of the Portuguese Kingdom (Portuguese Empire). After vehemently refusing several proposals of marriage, Joan joined the Dominican (Dominican order) Convent of Jesus in Aveiro (Aveiro, Portugal) in 1475. Her brother had, by then, been given an heir, so the family line was no longer in danger of extinction. Still, she was compelled several times to leave the convent and return to the court. She turned down an offer of marriage from Charles VII of France, 18 years her junior. In 1485, she received another offer, from the recently-widowed Richard III of England, who was only 8 months younger. This was to be part of a double marital alliance, with his niece Elizabeth of York marrying her cousin, the future Manuel I (Manuel I of Portugal). However, his death in battle, of which Joan allegedly had a prophetic dream, halted these plans. Joan never formally professed (Profession (religious)) as a nun. She continued to be a great supporter of her brother, John II of Portugal, throughout his reign and her life.

'''Tangier''' ( ; the major English (English (language))-language dictionaries also accept the spelling ''Tangiers'') in is a major city in northern Morocco with a population of about 850,000 (2014 estimates). It is located on the North African coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel. It is the capital of the Tangier-Tetouan Region and of the Tangier-Asilah prefecture of Morocco.

The history of Tangier is very rich, due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from before the 5th century BCE. Between the period of being a strategic Berber (Berber people) town and then a Phoenician trading center to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status (International city) by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.

The city is currently undergoing rapid development and modernization. Projects include new tourism projects along the bay, a modern business district called Tangier City Center, a new airport terminal and a new football stadium. Tangier's economy is also set to benefit greatly from the new Tanger-Med port.
