Present-day Guinea Bissau was historically part of the Mali empire from the 13th to 17th centuries, and later part of the Gabu (or Kaabu) kingdom from the 16th to 19th centuries. From the 15th century, the coast became a focus of slave trading by Portuguese merchants, and the coast and inland areas were fully colonised by the Portuguese in the 19th century. An armed rebellion against colonial rule from the 1950s led to independence in 1974 as a republic. Since independence, Guinea Bissau has experienced ongoing political instability. Initially, government was highly centralised, with multi-party governance established in 1991. However, since independence no president has successfully served a full five-year term, and there has been a succession of military coups.
