Abstract: September 2, 2019 marks the anniversary of the uprising of the Maltese against the French in 1798. Thomas Zerafa writes that the determination of Carolina, wife of King Ferdinand of Naples, to starve the French in Malta to avenge her sister Antoinette's execution, played a part in the insurrection's eventual success.
