"Manaus (Portuguese pronunciation: [mɐˈnaws] or [mɐˈnawʃ]) or Manaós before 1939 or (formerly) Lugar de Barra do Rio Negro, is the capital city of the state of Amazonas innorthern Brazil. It is situated at the confluence of the Negro and Solimões rivers. With a population of more than 2.0 million it is the most populous city of Amazonas, and also the most populous city of the Amazon rainforest."
Known as the city near the meeting of rivers, where the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões meet, becoming the Amazon River, Manaus has a tumultuous history not unlike Brazil's. The infographics dive into some Manaus-specific events but touch Brazil as a whole, focusing on key events up until 1920 (from when the Brazilian Rubber Boom roughly ended) and from 1920 on.
