Map of Togo

The German protectorate of Togoland was established in 1884.

During the first month of World War I (August 1914), French and British forces invaded the region and forced the Germans to surrender the territory.

In 1920 Lome and the entire coastline, comprising the eastern two-thirds of the pre-1914 German colony, were assigned to France as French Togo.

The smaller, western section was administered by Britain as part of the Gold Coast.

French Togoland achieved independence on April 27, 1960, as Togo.
