Clipperton Island

Information about Clipperton Island

This isolated island was named for John CLIPPERTON, a pirate who made it his hideout early in the 18th century.

Annexed by France in 1855, it was seized by Mexico in 1897.

Arbitration eventually awarded the island to France, which took possession in 1935.
