<p>Grenada ( (listen) grin-AY-də; Grenadian Creole French: Gwenad) is a sovereign state in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea at the southern end of the Grenadines island Series. </p>Grenada consists itself and six islands which lie to the island's north. It is located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, northeast of Venezuela and southwest of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Its size is 348.5 square kilometres (134.6 sq mi), and it had an estimated population of 112,200 in July 2018. Its capital is St. George's. Grenada is also known as the"Island of Spice" because of its production of nutmeg and mace crops. Grenada's bird is the Grenada dove. Prior to the arrival of Europeans in the Americas, the Island Caribs inhabited by the Arawaks and afterwards Grenada. Christopher Columbus sighted Grenada in 1498 during his third voyage. Though it was deemed the property of the King of Spain, there are no records to indicate the Spanish landed or settled on the island. Following several unsuccessful attempts by Europeans to colonise the island because of resistance in the Island Caribs, colonisation and French settlement began in 1650 and lasted for the next century. On 10 February 1763, Grenada was ceded to the British under the Treaty of Paris. British rule lasted until 1974 (except for a period of French rule between 1779 and 1783). From 1958 to 1962 Grenada was part of the Federation of the West Indies, a short-lived federation of British West Indian colonies. March 1967, Grenada was granted full autonomy over its internal affairs as an associated state. Independence as a state was granted on 7 February 1974, without breaking formal ties with the Commonwealth, under the leadership. In March 1979, the Marxist--Leninist New Jewel Movement overthrew Gairy's government in a popular bloodless coup d'état and established the People's Revolutionary Government (PRG), led by Maurice Bishop as Prime Minister. Bishop was afterwards implemented by military hardliners, prompting a U.S.-led invasion in October 1983. Since then democratic governance was restored and the island has remained stable.
