The island was discovered by and named after Louis-Antoine, Comte de Bougainville (1729-1811) - a French admiral and explorer who landed here in in 1768. In the 19th-century (1822-81) the island was used mainly as a provisioning stop for British and US whaling ships. It was annexed by Germany in 1899 as part of the German New Guinea. During WW1 (1914-18), German New Guinea was occupied by Australia and after the war ceded to Australia (as Territory of New Guinea). In 1942 (during WW2 / 1939-45) Japan invaded and occupied the island (until 1945). Following the war, the Territory of New Guinea was returned to Australia. In 1949, Australia's Territory of New Guinea and Territory of Papua were merged to form the Territory of Papua and New Guinea (Australian colony). In 1975, Australia issued the Papua New Guinea Independence Act with wich terminated its sovereign power over PNG.
