The European influence in Afghanistan refers to political, social, and sometimes imperialistic influence several European nations have had on this historical development of Afghanistan.


Rise of Dost Mohammad Khan

In 1823, with the end of the Durrani Empire, Dost Mohammad Khan became the Emir of Afghanistan. It was not until 1826 that the energetic Dost Mohammad Khan was able to exert sufficient control over his brothers to take over the throne in Kabul, where he proclaimed himself the Shah.

Dost Mohammad achieved prominence among his brothers through clever use of the support of his mother's Qizilbash[citation needed] tribesmen and his own youthful apprenticeship under his brother, Fateh Khan. Among the many problems he faced was repelling Sikh encroachment on the Pashtun areas east of the Khyber Pass. After working assiduously to establish control and stability in his domains around Kabul, the Shah next chose to confront the Sikhs.
