To facilitate this trade, the Germans built three railway lines: the copra line to Aného, the coffee and cocoa line to Kpalimé, and the cotton line to Blitta (in the middle of the country).This de facto partitioning of the territory resulted in two protectorates.After World War II, the mandate granted by the League of Nations was transferred to the UN, which had just been created and which insisted that the two protectorates be replaced by autonomous government.Over time, the Europeans established trading posts on the coast but it was not until 1884 that they gained the beachhead that would lead to colonisation.
