Abstract:Description of the rising of the menalamba, the Red Shawls, against colonial rule after the conquest of Madagascar by the French in 1895. The menalamba were those who resisted France in the name of the kingdom of Madagascar or the kingdom of Imerina, a central kingdom on the island. The revolt was also directed against queen Ranavalona III and her government, who were on the side of the French. The civil war lasted from 1895 to 1899, when the country was pacified by the French general Gallieni, who then abolished the monarchy. Madagascar became independent again in 1960.
