Did you know Equatorial Guinea used to be called the “Spanish Guinea”?
It is the only country in Africa that was colonized by the Spanish.
In 1778, the Spanish gained control of Equatorial Guinea via the Treaty of El Pardo. The treaty was an agreement between the Spain Empire and the Kingdom of Portugal. From 1778 to 1810 Spain directed Spanish Guinea through the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, based in present-day Argentina.
