Ubangi-Shari (The original French name Oubangui-Chari), Sango Ködörösêse tî Bêafrîka, since 1894 was the name given to an area in Central Africa, which in 1910 was part of the colony French Equatorial Africa. After the inclusion of the northeastern part of the former German colony of German Cameroon in 1916 during the First World War, the area Ubangi-Shari covered largely with the territory of the since 1960 independent Central African Republic.
The name Ubangi-Shari was formed from the two major rivers of the area: the Ubangi and Shari.
In 1906, the French colonial occupation united the area with their colony Chad until 1910 part of the larger French Equatorial Africa was. With the establishment of the Central African Republic, the name Ubangi-Shari disappeared from the maps.
