  6. 6. MADAGASCARMadagascar, or Republic of Madagascar (older name Malagasy Republic) is anisland nation in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern coast of Africa. The mainisland, also called Madagascar, is the fourth-­largest island in the world.Madagascar is also one of the poorest countries in the world. As poverty andmalnutrition go hand in hand, it is no surprise that nearly 50% of population suffers from malnutrition with children andelderly being the most vulnerable.Page   6
  7. 7. SLOVAKIA  AND  MADAGASCAR Maurice Benyowsky (1746 -­ 1786) left a legacy of a brave explorer, a knight carrying the flag of liberty over three continents, unifier of Madagascar,a citizen of the world. Baron Benyowsky was a nobleman of Slovak origin. He began his career as an officer in the Seven Years War. Because of his rebellious attitude in matters of religion and towards authorities he had to leave the country. In 1768 Benyowsky joined the Polish Confederation to fight side by side with Pulaski brothers for independence of Poland from the Russian rule. After being captured by Russians in 1770 he was sent into exile to the east Siberia (Kamchatka). However he managed to escape from the captivity. He then commandeered a Russian battleship and set out for a discovery trip through the Northern Pacific (well before James Cook and J. F. La Perouse) along the Aleutians, Alaska, Japan, Formosa (Taiwan), arriving in Macao in 1771. He also visited the huge island of Madagascar off the African coast, then still independent and ruled by countless native chieftains. In 1772 Benyowsky eventually arrived in France, where he suggested to the King Louis XV that he should establish a French colony on Formosa or Madagascar. The king appointed him as Governor of Madagascar, gave him the title of count and sent him off to Madagascar. In 1774 Benyowsky arrived in Madagascar with a corps of volunteers. He established a colony at Maroantsetra called Louisborg. Besides building the French presence and geographically exploring the island he was unifying tribes. In 1776 local kings elected him as their Ampansacabe of Madagascar (Emperor). Among other things he introduced Latin script for the Madagascar language.Page   7

  9. 9. SLOVAKIA  AND  MADAGASCAR In  1776  Benyowsky  was  promoted  to  French  General  and  awarded  the  Order  of  Saint  Louis.  Later  he   returned  to  Central  Europe    and  elaborated  a  project  of  Austrias  access  road  to  the  Mediterranean   and  was  empowered  to  take  control  of  Madagascar  in  the  name  of  Austria. In  Paris  he  became  a  close  friend  of  Benjamin  Franklin and  Kazimir  (Casimir)  Pulaski  .  In  1779   Benyowsky  followed  Pulaski  to  America  and  offered  his  services  in  the  American  Revolution.  He   joined  General  Pulaski  for  the  tragic  Savannah  battle,  where  Pulaski  died  in  his  friends  hands. In  1781  Benyowky  returned  to  America  with  a  project  of  recruiting  in  Europe  an  American  Legion  to   help  the  Revolution.  The  project  was  favorably  evaluated.   In  1783  Benyowsky  presented  his  Memoirs  and  Travels (in  French)  to  J.  H.  Magellan  (a  descendant   of  Ferdinand  M.)  for  publication  in  the  United  Kingdom.  With  Benjamin  Franklins  assistance  he   founded  an  American-­British  company  for  business  with  Madagascar. In  1784  Benyowsky  left  Baltimore  on  board  the  Intrepid  provided  by  Baltimore  businessmen   Messonier  and  Zollikofer.  Back  in  Madagascar  Benyowsky  challenged  in  the  name  of  his  empire  the   European  powers.  Benyowsky  perished  as  Malagasy  monarch  in  1786  in  fights  with  the  French. Thanks  to  the  help  of  Benjamin  Franklin,  Benyowskys  descendants  kept  the  spirit  of  cosmopolitanism   and  can  be  found  all  across  Europe,  as  well  as  in  the  United  States.Page   9
