Christopher Columbus arrived in Haiti in December 1492, at that time appointed Mole Saint-Nicolas and the colony of the Castilian kingdom. 19 days later Cabo Haitiano (Cap-Haitien) ran into the Santa Maria Reef and left 39 soldiers who founded La Navidad (December 24th) and then resigned to the Spanish Empire. The immune system of the local population was not prepared for the illnesses imported by the Spaniards, so practically 1507 had abolished most of the aboriginal population and the few survivors practically slain. February 27, 1512 II. King Fernando accepted and signed the Leyes de Burgos (Burgos laws, which were ruled in the city of Burgos), which authorized the liberation, compulsory teaching and redeployment of the aborigines of the subordinated areas from slavery. The law was started in 1513 in Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Haiti. The XVII. At the beginning of the 18th century, there was a very strong upswing due to trade between the rest of the indigenous population and the Spaniards, and the Spanish Governor Antonio de Osorio ordered between 1605 and 1606 to evacuate the western and northwestern parts of the island to curb these commercial transactions. In the vacant areas, the buccaneers, who were mainly engaged in the hunting of cattle and pigs in the wild, were processed and traded, traded with them, and later achieved significant results in tobacco production, recruiting families and workers from Martinique and Guadeloupe, mostly French were origined. In 1697, as a result of the Ryswick Treaty, the western part came under French rule, creating Saint Domingue Frances. The XVIII. By the middle of the century, the French Saint Domingue had nearly 300,000 slaves, and nearly 12,000 were the number of free populations, mostly white and mulattoes. In the year 1790, the conflicts between the various leather stains, the settlers and the slaves, resulted in continuous slavery uprisings, from 1791 onwards the so-called Haitian Revolution where the slave population was united and liberated himself by François Dominique Toussaint Louverture.
During the Revolution several times were fought with French, English and Spanish soldiers. Immediately in 1803, Jean Jacques Dessalines defeated French infantry and appointed Emperor Haiti and restored the country’s oldest name, Haiti. The despotic governance of Dessalines and the suppression of the white population and the execution of more than 10,000 white-collar workers led to the assassination of Dessalines on October 17, 1806, after a murmur uprising who formed the upper and middle classes of the country. After the death of Dessalines, the island was divided into two parts, the Northern Comoros which was led by Henri Christopheb’s black-haired slave, and the southern republic that Alexandre Petion had received. In 1822, Jean-Pierre Boyer reunited the divided country. On July 11, 1825, France was recognized by France for the independence of Haiti, in return for the payment of 150 million French Frank, which was reduced by 90 billion by Lajos Fülöp in 1838. In 1838, the uprisings and rebellions began against the Spanish populace living in the west, the origin of which was the Dominican Republic on February 27, 1844.

Beginning in 1964, the Francois Duvalier dictatorship began in 1971 by his son Jean Cloude Duvalier. In 1986, Duvalier’s powers were overthrown, and in 1988 elections were made, but 1991 was mostly dealt with by military leadership. In 1994, René Préval, later replaced by Boniface Alexandre, attempted to regain the country in a democratic way, governed by the 2010 a famous Port-au-Prince earthquake broke out, more than 360,000 people were killed, 350,000 people were seriously injured, with no more than 1.5 million inhabitants left behind. With the help of international aid, the country has slowly begun to develop, and this sluggish progress will continue with Michel Martelly and Juvenile Moise’s presidency to this day.

The Sans Souci Castle, the La Ferriere and the Ramiers buildings, which were part of the World Heritage Site, were all made during the reign of Henri Christophe.

He gained independence and became involved in the contingency struggles with I. Jacob in 1791, where he became a Resistance to the rank of General in 1802, and participated in the coup d’etat of I. Jacob in 1806 and took control of the country, his ally Alexandre Petion became an enemy after receiving the country and he created the Republic of South, so the country divided into two parts. In 1811 Henri Christophe appointed himself King I. Enrique. The 6 castles, 8 palaces and the largest fortress of South America were built at the time of the rule of Le Citadelle, or the so-called Cuidadela de Laférriere. In 1820 he became a suicide with a gold ball, he feared to overthrow his power, his son Delfin Victor Enrique, after his father’s death, letting him live and thus extinct the Christophe dynasty. Since in his reign, Enrique enacted a law that women cannot be rulers, so his wife Maria Luisa and her two daughters fled to Athens and Amatista in Italy, lived in Pisa and settled there with ultimate rest.
The Sans Souci Castle is located in Milot, which was a sugar cane plant belonging to the French, during which time Henri Chrisophe was active in this area during the Haiti Revolution.
