Carthage (Phoenician/Punic: 𐤒𐤓𐤕𐤇𐤃𐤔𐤕 Qārtḥadāšt, "new-city"; Latin: Carthāgō, pronounced [karˈtʰaːɡoː]) was the capital city of Ancient Carthage, on the eastern side of the Lake of Tunis in what is now Tunisia. Carthage was one of the most important trading hubs of the Ancient Mediterranean and one of the most affluent cities of the classical world.
The city developed from a Canaanite Phoenician colony into the capital of a Punic empire which dominated large parts of the Southwest Mediterranean during the first millennium BC.The legendary Queen Alyssa or Dido, originally from Tyre, is regarded as the founder of the city, though her historicity has been questioned. According to accounts by Timaeus of Tauromenium, she purchased from a local tribe the amount of land that could be covered by an oxhide. As Carthage prospered at home, the polity sent colonists abroad as well as magistrates to rule the colonies.
The ancient city was destroyed in the nearly-three year siege of Carthage by the Roman Republic during the Third Punic War in 146 BC and then re-developed as Roman Carthage, which became the major city of the Roman Empire in the province of Africa. The question of Carthaginian decline and demise, especially whether Carthage did or should fall at the hands of the Romans, has remained a subject of literary, political, artistic, and philosophical debates in both ancient and modern histories. 
Carthage Influence in Malta
There are impactful historical events in the timelines that connect the blood sacrifice teachings of the Canaanites from Carthage as infiltrating the Maltese island culture, which later formed into the legacies which include the Knights of Malta. The Canaanites left their indelible imprint when a group of ancient satanic priests from Carthage, who worshipped Baal and Moloch through child blood sacrifices, came to the island and began to use the many catacombs, tunnels and underground structures for inverting goddess worship by carrying out their covert satanic blood rituals. The subterranean passages and caverns span the entire island and were intersecting with the catacombs beneath Rome which were siphoning the spiritual power of the Mother Goddess principle. Malta’s temples, catacombs, caves and tunnels were specifically built upon powerful intersecting Dragon nodes and portal systems that also have connections into the Albion controls in the United Kingdom, and these intelligent systems were genetically coded into the Dragon Templar originally built and placed there by the Emerald Order Founders.
