Español Guinea Ecuatorial - República de Guinea Ecuatorial

La República de Guinea Ecuatorial es un país del África central, y uno de los países más pequeños del África continental. Limita con Camerún al norte, Gabón al sur y el Golfo de Guinea al oeste, donde las islas de Santo Tomé y Príncipe se ubican al suroeste. Antiguamente fue una colonia española conocida como Guinea Española, y obtuvo su independencia el 12 de octubre de 1968. El territorio del país (conocido continentalmente como "Río Muni" o "Mbini") incluye un gran número de islas, entre las que se encuentran la isla de Bioko, donde se ubica la capital, Malabo (llamada antiguamente Santa Isabel). El nombre que adoptó el país tras obtener su independencia se debe a la cercanía con el Ecuador y a estar situado en el golfo de Guinea.

History maps

This section holds a short summary of the history of the area of present-day Equatorial Guinea, illustrated with maps, including historical maps of former countries and empires that included present-day Equatorial Guinea.

The island of Bioko is discovered by the Portuguese explorer Fernando Póo in 1474, who renames the island after himself. Together with the island of Annóbon the Portuguese colony of Fernando Póo is formed. The colony is ceded to Spain in 1778, though due to the yellow fever there is no Spanish settlement between 1780 and 1843. Since 1843 the colony also includes Río Muni, an area on the African continent and is also known as Spanish Guinea. The islands and Río Muni are officially united in 1926 into the colony of Spanish Guinea. Spanish Guinea is divided in 1959 into the Spanish overseas provinces of Fernando Póo and Río Muni, but reunited as Equatorial Guinea in 1963. In 1968 the country becomes independent as the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
