EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases Charles le Myre de Vilers, the resident general of Madagascar during the 19th century. The image takes us back to a significant period in history when France invaded Madagascar in 1883, marking the beginning of the first Franco-Hova War. The conflict arose as French authorities sought to reclaim properties that had been confiscated from French residents on the island. Prior to this intervention, Madagascar was an independent kingdom ruled by the Merina dynasty. As we delve deeper into this historical narrative, we discover that by the end of the Second Franco-Hova War in 1896, France had established its rule over Madagascar as a protectorate. This resulted in abolishing the monarchy and exiling members of the royal family to Algeria. The photograph itself captures more than just political upheaval; it offers glimpses into both natural beauty and human activity. Set against a picturesque backdrop featuring a bridge and waterfall cascading down a river, Charles le Myre de Vilers can be seen leading his men across this scenic landscape. This image serves as a reminder of colonialism's impact on Africa during this era. It symbolizes not only power struggles between nations but also highlights how geographical features intertwine with historical events. Through this lithograph print created by AccuSoft Inc. , we are transported back to witness an important chapter in Madagascar's past while appreciating its stunning countryside and cultural heritage.
