Franz Marc, Blaues Pferd, 1911
  • November 1 – World's first combat aerial bombing mission takes place in Libya throughout the Italo-Turkish War. Second Lieutenant Giulio Gavotti of Italy drops several small bombs.
  • November 4 – Treaty of Berlin brings the Agadir Crisis to a close. This treaty leads Morocco to be split between France (as a protectorate) and Spain (as the colony of Spanish Sahara) with Germany forfeiting all claims to Morocco. In return, France gives Germany a portion of the French Congo (as Kamerun) and Germany cedes a few of German Kamerun to France (as Chad).
  • November 5 – Italy annexes Tripoli and Cyrenaica (confirmed by an act of the Italian Parliament on February 25, 1912).
