Destination information Malta

History

Malta has been owned by the Feniciërs, a Libanese nation, for a long time. In 218 the Romans conquered the Island and build the former capital Melita (now it is Mdina). 60 Years after Christ, Apostle Paulus  grounded at Malta and tried to spread Christianity. Due to the arrival of the Arabs this wasn’t successful, but the new nation did bring new agricultural products and irrigation systems that helped to improve the island. This ended up in fights between the Turkish and English nation. The English won the fight and build Valetta, which is named after the leader Jean Parisot de la Valette. 

In 1798 Napoleon took over the island. A lot of the knights from the English nation were originally French. As a reaction England sent a navy to block the Island. Only two years after the British were able to take over the island again. After World War II Malta got their own government, but only became independent in 1974. In 2004 Malta became a member of the European Union.
