The Republic of Chad (Republique du Chad) is a country in Central Africa. Much of its territory is in the Sahara Desert. The influence of Islam in these lands dates back to the Middle Ages. In the 18th century, European missionaries took Christianity. In the early 20th century, France took over Chad, as part of French Equatorial Africa, and installed a Foreign Legion barracks. Independence was achieved in 1960. There are 12 million residents (2016). Most of the population is concentrated in the south of the country, near Lake Chad. The capital is N’Djamena, former Lamy Fort.
