He was named Bey al-Mahalla
(Heir Apparent) on 3 December 1898 and succeeded as Bey of Tunis
on the day of his predecessor's death, 11 June 1902, at a ceremony in the throne room of the palace in Tunis, in the presence of the French resident.
Before the French protectorate of Tunisia
sultan had bestowed honorific military ranks on the Bey of Tunis and his Heir Apparent. Hédi Bey did not receive such an honour, but was instead made Divisional General of the Beylical Guard when he became Heir Apparent, and became Marshal on his accession.
