The Invasion of Algiers in 1830 was a large scale military operation by which the Kingdom of France, ruled by Charles X, invaded and conquered the Ottoman Regency of Algiers. Algiers had been protectorate of the Ottoman Empire since the Capture of Algiers in 1529 by Barbarossa. A diplomatic incident, the so-called Fan Affair, served as a pretext for the invasion, which was instigated by Charles X to divert attention from French domestic affairs that culminated with his deposition during the later stages of the invasion in the July Revolution.
