History

The Italian city of Naples was founded by the Greeks during ancient times. Naples fell under Roman rule in the 3rd century BCE and the city became one of the empire’s richest ports. In the 6th century, Naples became part of the Byzantine Empire. In the 7th century, Naples gained independence as its own separate kingdom but the city was conquered by the Normans in the 12th century. In the 15th century, Naples was conquered by Spain and in the 17th century, Naples became a major European political center, after anti-government protests broke out over excessive taxation. In the 18th century, Naples was ruled by the Kingdom of Sicily, and the city was occupied by France during the Napoleonic Wars. Naples joined unified Italy in 1860, and during the Second World War, Naples was the first Italian city to rise up against German occupation. During the post-war period, Naples has flourished and remains one of Italy’s largest and most important cities.
