dc.description.abstractNapoleon was born on 15th August 1769. As a soldier, he was aware of the importance of the Mediterranean in European maritime commerce to the east. That is when he first thought of little Malta enjoying a strategic commanding post that could serve and control French naval interests. On his way to Egypt in June 1798, Bonaparte kept his promise. The takeover, with some 37,000 Maltese in sympathy with the enlightened French Republic, offered little resistance. The reforms introduced by Napoleon in Malta were a blueprint for future ones in France and Europe.en_GB
