Funded by the French Society of Geography and the Ministries of the Navy, Foreign Affairs and Public Instruction represented by François Paul Dufourcq, naval officer and delegate of the Ministry of Education, the second mission is clearly more fruitful. Having left on December 27, 1879, in the company of Jean-Noel Savelli, Brazza reached the Congo River in 1880. He proposed to Illoy I, Makoko de Mbe, King of Teke, to place his kingdom under the protection of France.
King Makoko, driven by commercial interests and the possibility of weakening his rivals, signed the treaty, also allowing a French settlement at Nkuna over Congo, a place later called Brazzaville. In attempting to reach the ocean from Franceville, Brazza stumbles upon the primary goal of his research: the sources of Ogooue. In November 1885, he was appointed Commissioner General of the French Congo.
