The island of St. Helena is a sparsely populated island in the Atlantic Ocean that is a British Overseas Territory together with Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The remote island lies some 1,200 miles to the west of southwestern Africa and some 2,500 miles east of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The island was uninhabited for much of its history and today has a population of just over 4,500 people. Famous as the spot of Napoleons exile, St. Helena was also a major stopping point for East India Company vessels returning to Britain from the East Indies.
