Malti Malta - Repubblika ta' Malta

Ir-Repubblika ta' Malta hija nazzjon ta' gżejjer żgħar fl-Ewropa t'Isfel. Minħabba l-pożizzjoni ġeo-strateġika tal-pajjiż f'nofs il-Baħar Mediterran, Malta sa minn dejjem sfat maħkuma minn diversi qawwiet kbar tul is-sekli u kienet l-għira ta' ħakkiema oħrajn għaliex kienet ikkunsidrata l-bieb għall-Ewropa Ċentrali. Dan wassal għal diversi attakki, kemm mis-sibbien li kienu jagħmlu ħerba miż-żoni tat-Tramuntana li ma kinux difiżi u kemm minn qawwiet oħrajn li ġġieldu sabiex jiksbuha.
