The Republic of Malta is a small and densely populated European microstate in the Mediterranean Sea just south of Sicily, comprising an archipelago of seven islands. Its central location has made it a desirable outpost, and in the past it has been a possession of, among others, the Roman, French, and British Empires.

Malta in "The Maltese Elephant"Edit

A little-known species of elephant was native to Malta. One live specimen was shipped to the waterfront of San Francisco, California, USA, and was the target of a violent competition between various criminals who desired possession of it.

Malta in "News From the Front"Edit

In early April 1942, anti-war protestors in London called for British withdrawal from Malta, among other demands.[1]

Malta in The Two GeorgesEdit

Malta was part of the British Empire. In the late 20th Century, one of the titles of King-Emperor Charles III was Lord of Malta.[2]

Malta in WorldwarEdit

Malta, part of the British Empire, was besieged by the Italians and Germans from 1940-1942 during World War II. The Race's 1942 invasion of Earth disrupted all of this.[3] After the dust settled and the Peace of Cairo was signed in 1944, the Germans retained Malta as part of the Reich.[4]
