The Province of Tunisia (German: Provinz von Morokko) is a province of the Duchy of Brunswick. The province is made up of the former Republic of Tunisia. It is bordered by the provinces of Libya and Algeria. Its capital is Tunis.
Phoenicians settled Tunisia in the 12th century B.C. The city-state Carthage controlled much of the western Mediterranean by the 6th and 5th centuries. The city-state was destroyed by 146 B.C. by the Romans in the Punic Wars. Carthage remained a part of the Roman Empire until the Arabs conquered the city-state from A.D. 648-669. Carthage was ruled by Arab and Berber dynasties before the Turks conquered from 1570-1574 and kept it until the 19th century. France recognized Tunisia’s independence and sovereignty in 1956 and it became a republic in 1957.
Tunisia became a part of the Duchy in 2010.
