  Italian East Africa - former federation of Italian territories in East Africa that
comprised the colonies of Eritrea and Italian Somaliland (see Somalia) and the
kingdom of Ethiopia. Formed in 1936, when Italian forces conquered Ethiopia,
it lasted until the territories were freed of Italian rule by the British in 1941. By
December 1942, the Italians had been totally defeated. Ethiopia restored its
independence; Eritrea was placed under Ethiopian control in 1952 (becoming
independent of that country in 1993); and Italian Somaliland, after a period as a
UN trusteeship, became part of
Somalia in 1960. AFRICA ORIENTALE ITALIANA
