Italy was the colonial ruler of Eritrea from 1890 until 1941, when it fell to British forces in the Second World War, and a British protectorate was set up. This ended in 1952 when the UN sanctioned its federation with Ethiopia. In 1962 Ethiopia became a unitary state and Eritrea was incorporated as a province.
