Medieval Ivory Coast
Before the 18th century the
Ivory Coast was settled by various tribes. These tribes were hostile to one another.
200 years ago the Baule migrated from Ghana to become the dominant peoples along the Ivory
Coast. By the
15th century the Portuguese had begun trading along the coast. The Portuguese
were followed by the Dutch, British
& French. The Europeans were impinged by the dense
forests of the Ivory Coast & exploration was limited.
