Explore the Island
Capital: Fort De France
Population: Approximately 500 000 inhabitants

Language: French, Martinican Creole, and Antillean Creole
The native term for Martinique is ‘Madiana’ which means the ‘Island of Flowers’. The island was also nicknamed ‘Jouanacaera’ which refers to ‘the island of iguanas’. Christopher Columbus discovered Martinique in 1502 at a time when the area was dominated by Indians.
In 17th century ‘Compagnie des iles d’Amerique’ colonized Martinique. Around 1636, King Louis the 13th authorized slavery in French Antilles. This action was a catalyst for the onset of colonization, where natives battled with the French. The climax of the battles was ‘the battle of ‘Rocher du Diamant’.
In 1845, the French recovered the Island, and when Napoleon war was over, the state experienced stability. Despite the conflicts, slavery was still on even when other regions like Guadeloupe had abolished it.
Between 1816 and 1848, Martiniqans experienced a series of revolts. By 1948, slavery was wiped out of Martinique by the Minister of Foreign Territories, Victor Schoelcher.
In March 1902, Saint Pierre, the capital of Martinique faced a natural destruction from a fatal eruption of Mt. Pelee which claimed the lives of all 30,000 inhabitants. since then, the capital was moved to Fort De France.
In 1946, Martinique was honored as a French territory and from 1982 other areas have always regarded Martinique as a French region.
