French President Emanuel Macron, in Malta on Friday for a summit for southern European countries, was taken to visit the room where French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte stayed during the French occupation of Malta between 1798 and 1800.
Macron was shown around the room by Foreign Minister Carmelo Abela.
For seven days, Napoleon stayed in a room in Palazzo Parisio which now forms part of the Foreign Affairs Ministry in Merchants Street.
The French Empire had taken over Malta from the Knights of St John.
A marble bust of Napoleon is situated in the room where Napoleon stayed, in which Macron took a particular interest.
