On 13th June 1798 Napoleon Bonaparte landed in Malta and took residence at Palazzo Parisio in Valletta. During his seven eventful days’ stay at the Palazzo, prior to embarking for his Egyptian campaign, Napoleon dictated the transformation of Malta’s ancient legal and administrative structures in the Republican ‘Code Napoleon’. Less than three months, later these imposed, deep rooted and abrupt changes instigated the insurrection of the Maltese against the French.
