Lanaya has not a very big story because it is only 300 years since the island was discovered by a dutch explorer named John Van Blakeway, who worked for Holland in 1710. Holland has used the island as a place to transfer cargo between the mainland and New Amsterdam (New York City actual location). Lanaya has developed gradually and until 1734, when they began to exploit the land, making agriculture and livestock in the valleys, and especially wood for shipbuilding. This brought a great wave of European immigration, but primarily of African slaves. Life goes on, the colony prospered, Holland is worried and shrugged taxes dramatically in the middle of 18th century. France bought Lanaya from Holland but, the gap between the rich merchants and French governors and the Lanayan people had become too large and that led to the creation of several anti-slavery for independence rallies. In 1834, the War of Independence broke out between France and Lanaya after filing the declaration of independence by Philippe Solando, who was the general of the independence side army, to the French governor. It was the February 17th. At the beginning of the war, France was winning. But the revolutionaries resisted as best they could until the summer when almost all hope of victory was destroyed. Stroke of luck for Lanaya, Great Britain, sworn enemy of France, joins the side of independence movement, providing the victory to Lanaya. Why Britain helped Lanaya? Simply to have a revenge for the assistance provided by France to the Americans during the American War of Independence. It was time to choose the type of government and the Parliamentary Constitutional Republic was a unanimous choice. After independence, an economic crisis ravaging the country for two years, but the economy stabilized and experienced a great boom during the industrial revolution. The country has not participated in WW1, but cons, it participated in the second. Since 1945, nationalism has a strong presence in the country after the loss of several soldiers and international involvement in politic and ecologic in the world and on its own territory affected Lanaya positively. Today, the official language is French, not dutch? Yup, because much of those Lanayan were talking alot of languages, making this island well known for traductors. Perhaps, the French get invold alot because it was the World must used language for commerce in the 19th.
