HistoryEdit

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.
