Ten years later, Libreville was founded by freed slaves.
During this time, the Fang were migrating from Cameroon into Gabon.
The different ethnic groups were separated from one another by the dense forest and remained intact.
As in many African countries, the borders of Gabon do not correspond to the borders of the ethnic groups.
The capital, Libreville, is on the west coast in the north.
It is in Fang territory, though it was not chosen for this reason.
The French obtained control inland and stymied the Fang migration, thus concentrating them in the north.
