The island of Corsica was originally governed by the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire during antiquity and then by Genoa during the Middle and Early Modern ages. However, Corsicans eventually rebelled to Genoese rule and the rights to the rebel-ridden island were sold to France in 1768. Napoleon Bonaparte was born in the Corsican town of Ajaccio only a few weeks after this had come to pass.
