The History of Mauritius

Mauritius was uninhabited before its discovery, but how this discovery came about is contested. The island started to appear on European maps in the early 16th century, and Portuguese sailors found the island between 1507 and 1513. Despite this, it's thought that the Arabs knew of Mauritius before the Europeans, but it wasn't until the Dutch bought sugar cane and Java deer to the island that permanent settlements were made. They left in 1710 for the Cape of Good Hope, and after this both the French and English colonised Mauritius before it won independence in 1968.
