The Phoenicians and Carthaginians in Malta decided to open the island up to widespread trade, and built flourishing communities and sophisticated complexes that brought culture and prosperity to the island. Knights came and colonised it, which led to great changes for all the Maltese on the island.

In 1798 Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Malta, but his rule lasted only two years, when the Maltese got bored and rebelled against the British, they killed him.
