The location of Bahrain
An enlargeable map of the Kingdom of Bahrain

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Bahrain:

BahrainIslamic sovereign island nation located in the Persian Gulf.[1] In the late 1800s, following successive treaties with the British, Bahrain became a protectorate of the United Kingdom. Following the withdrawal of the British from the region in the late 1960s, Bahrain declared independence in 1971. Formerly a state, Bahrain was declared a "Kingdom" in 2002. Since early 2011, the country has experienced sustained protests and unrest inspired by the regional Arab Spring, particularly by the majority Shia population.
