The island of Fernando Po, present day Bioko Island, was sighted by the Portuguese navigator, Fernando Po, in 1471.
Portugal ceded the island to Spain in 1778, and then with the permission of the Spanish government, Great Britain maintained a naval station at Fernando Po and administered the island from 1827 until 1844.
Sixty years later Fernando Po and Rio Muni became known as the Spanish Territories of the Gulf of Guinea, or Spanish Guinea.
The territory gained independence as the republic of Equatorial Guinea on October 12, 1968.
