Martinique
   has the capital   
Fort-de-France
In 1635 a small contingency of French colonizers arrived on the island. They settled on the northwestern portion of the island, later to become known as St. Pierre. As their numbers grew, the French made their way across the island defeating the fiercely resisting Caribs. About eight years after settling the island the last of the Caribs were brutally massacred in the area now known as Fort-de-France. Fort-de-France would soon become a major port as Martinique was the first stop for ships following the trade winds from Europe.
