Sir Charles Napier was commander of a small British squadron sent to Syria and Lebanon to remove the forces of Mehmet Ali, Pasha of Egypt, who had earlier defeated an Ottoman army. Napier bombarded Beirut and effected a landing, and became commander of the land forces after Sir Charles Smith, Brigadier-General of the army fell ill. After forcing the Egyptians out of Syria and Lebanon, Napier, acting independently, concluded a peace treaty with Mehmet Ali in Alexandria, recognizing Mehmet Ali as hereditary Pasha in exchange for renouncing claims to Syria.
