Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Central Bank of the Congo is the central bank of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The bank's main offices are on Boulevard Colonel Tshatshi in La Gombe in Kinshasa.As the DRC is much larger than Alaska, the central bank has branches in Kamina, Kasumbalesa, Kikwit, Tshikapa, Ilebo and Matadi.From 1886 to 1908, King Leopold II of Belgium ruled the Congo as his private domain. On July 27, 1887, he issued a Royal Decree that established the Franc as the money of account for the Congo Free State, and for Rwanda and Burundi. In 1890 the Heligoland-Zanzibar Treaty put Rwanda and Burundi within the German sphere of influence in Africa.
