Flag of Benin
The Republic of Benin, formerly Dahomey, is a country in West Africa. It borders Togo to the west, Nigeria to the east, Burkina Faso and Niger to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.

From the 17th century to the 19th century, the land of current-day Benin was ruled by the Kingdom of Dahomey. The region became known as the Slave Coast during the early 17th century due to the prevalence of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. In 1892, with the slave trade banned and regional power diminishing, France took over the area and renamed it French Dahomey. In 1960, Dahomey gained full independence from France.

Benin in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit

After Germany defeated France and other countries, and won the Second World War, French Dahomey was integrated into Germany's empire.[1]

Benin in WorldwarEdit

French Dahomey quickly fell to the Race's Conquest Fleet during their invasion of the Earth in 1942 along with the rest of Africa.[2] It was recognised as a Race colony after the Peace of Cairo in 1944.
