Marshall Islands History

Although the Marshall Islands were settled by Micronesians in the 2nd millennium BC, little is known of their early history.

Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar was the first European to see the islands in 1526, but they remained virtually unvisited by Europeans until the arrival of British Captain John Marshall in 1788. The islands were named after him.

A German trading company settled on the islands in 1885. They became part of the protectorate of German New Guinea some years later.

Under German Imperial control, and even before then the Marshall Islands were from time to time visited by Japanese traders and fishermen, but contact with the islanders was not on a regular basis. After the Meiji Restoration the Japanese government undertook a policy of turning Japan into a great economic and military power in East Asia.
