German East Africa was conquered by the allies in the First World War and was subsequently divided between the Portuguese, the Belgians and the British. The country was administered as a League of Nations mandate until 1946 and then as a UN Trusteeship Territory until 9th December 1961. Tanganyika (Tanzania) became independent on that date. On 26th April 1964 Tanganyika, Zanzibar and Pemba combined to form Tanzania.
