History maps

This section holds a short summary of the history of the area of present-day Chad, illustrated with maps, including historical maps of former countries and empires that included present-day Chad. Present-day Chad is since the ninth century governed by Islamic states, like Kanem-Bornu in the twelfth and thirteenth century and Baguirmi and Ouddai in the sixteenth and seventeenth century.

French Equatorial Africa.PNG France penetrates the region in 1891, establishing their authority through military expeditions primarily against the Muslim kingdoms. In 1900 it starts the formal annexation and in 1911 it declares the region pacified. Chad becomes part of the colony of Ubangui-Chari-Chad, from 1910 constituent part of French Equatorial Africa. The territory is divided into Ubangi-Chari and Chad in 1920: Chad becomes a seperate constituent part of French Equatorial Africa. Chad is granted the status of a French overseas territory in 1946 and when in 1958 French Equatorial Africa is dissolved, Chad gets autonomy as the Republic of Chad.
