Colourful History of Malta

Because of its location, there are many ancient monuments and remains on Malta that speak volumes about its colourful history.

The Phoenicians colonised the island in about 1,000 BC.

A few hundred years later they were occupied by the Greeks, who called the colony Melita.

The islands passed into the Rome's hands, and then became a possession of the Arabs.

The Maltese Arabs were defeated by a Norman army in 1090, and Malta later became a feudal fief of the Kingdom of Sicily.

The Knights of St John of Jerusalem fortified Valletta after an unsuccessful siege by the Ottoman Turks in 1565, making it one of the foremost Mediterranean strongholds.

In 1798 Napoleon occupied the islands during his Egyptian campaign, but the French were forced to withdraw the following year, by Horatio Nelson.

Malta became a Crown Colony of the British Empire in 1814.

The Maltese were awarded the George Cross by George VI, in 1942, in recognition of their bravery against Italian and German onslaughts.

The islanders became independent on September 21, 1964.

Visiting Malta
