The Republic of Mali is a large landlocked country in West Africa and includes a substantial segment of the Sahara Desert. The territory came under French rule in the late nineteenth century and was known by a number of names during the colonial period and there were frequent boundary changes. From 1880, it was known as Upper Senegal, from 1890 French Soudan Territory, from 1902 Senegambia and Niger, from 1904 Upper Senegal and Niger and from 1920 until 1958, French Soudan (French Sudan). It was also part of a wider federation of French colonies known as French West Africa. In April 1959, French Soudan assumed the name République Soudanaise (Soudanese Republic) and joined with its neighbor, Senegal, to form the Mali Federation. The Federation gained independence from France in June 1960. In August 1960, Senegal withdrew from the Federation and the Soudanaise Republic became the Republic of Mali in September 1960.
