Hussein Roshdy Pasha

Hussein, Pasha Roshdy (1863–1928) (Arabic: حسين رشدي باشا‎) was an Egyptian political figure of Turkish origin[1][2] who served as Prime Minister of Egypt between 1914 and 1919. Under pressure from British authorities, Roshdy issued a “Decision of the Council of Ministers” which essentially declared war against the Central Powers in the First World War. He was later forced to resign for failing to resolve a strike by government officials demanding mandatory recognition of the Egyptian delegation by the cabinet and the withdrawal of British sentries and guards.[3]

He was married to Eugénie Le Brun.
