Description
By 1885, Leopold II, king of the Belgians, had become a virtual dictator of the Congo region. Although first seen as a humanitarian, Leopold was eventually forced to give up control of the Congo due to his exploitation of the region's resources. Today the people of the Congo continue to recover from his reign of terror.
