History

From the fifteenth to the middle of the nineteenth century, the region was governed by a series of sultanates, until a major European power turned its attention to the Comoros islands. From 1886 until 1975, the islands were administered under French rule. Thereafter, amidst a wave of African decolonization, partial independence was granted.

After breaking from French control, Anjouan joined the Federal Islamic Republic of the Comoros. A highly volatile union ensued and after a period of separatist movements in the latter part of the twentieth century, Anjouan now has economic and legislative independence within the Union of the Comoros under a settlement brokered by international bodies.
