France gained control starting in 1839, and Libreville (Free Town), Gabon’s capital, got its name when French forces freed slaves there in 1849. With independence in 1960, it functioned mostly as a one-party state until 1991, when a new constitution brought multiparty democracy. In 2002 the country created 13 new national parksΓÇösome 11 percent of Gabon’s areaΓÇöto protect its forests and wildlife from logging. ΓÇô National Geographic
