Financed by the French Geographic Society as well as by the Ministries of Marine, Foreign Affairs and Public Education represented by François Paul de Dufourcq, naval officer and delegate of the Ministry of Public Instruction, the second mission is clearly more fruitful. Having left on December 27, 1879, in the company of Jean-Noël Savelli in particular, Brazza reached the Congo River in 1880. He proposed to Illoy I, Makoko de Mbe, king of the Tekes, 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 establishment in Nkuna on the Congo, a place later called Brazzaville. In trying to reach the ocean from Franceville, Brazza stumbles upon the primary goal of his research: the sources of the Ogooué.In November 1885, he was appointed Commissioner General of the French Congo.
