Abstract: Like a clarion call, those two orders which were issued by Napoleon Bonaparte on 18 June 1798, a few hours before his departure from Malta, were meant to be part of his overall plan to educate and at the same time to integrate the Maltese population in line with the ideas and ideals then current in France. The quasi-total annihilation of the French fleet at Aboukir Bay a few weeks later by Nelson and his British squadron in the Mediterranean, and the uprising of the Maltese countryside shortly afterwards, brought to an untimely end all the plans which Napoleon had envisaged for the Maltese population. One can only speculate what would have been the impact on the mentality of the Maltese had those plans been put into effect.
