Q: Who Owns Saint Helena?

St. Helena is a British overseas territory. The island was discovered during a Portuguese voyage in 1502. The Dutch Republic claimed St. Helena first, but there is no evidence that they ever actually did anything with this claim. By 1659, a British Governor was in place. St. Helena has remained under British control ever since, with the brief exception of five months in 1673.
