Corfu used to be inhabited already in the Palaeolithic Era , - . According to the mythology and the tradition, the island took its name from the nymph Korkyra , daughter of the Peloponnesian river God Asopos . Poseidon God of the sea fell in love with her, kidnapped her and took her to the island.

From their union Phaeacas was born, founder of the Phaeacians . Therefor Corfu is called even today the island of the Phaeacians. According to Homer and to the tradition in the bay of Ermones in the northwest site of the island Nausica the daughter of King Alcinoos found the shipwrecked Odysseus . Because of its geographical position between East and West Corfu Island has been conquered by many nations.

The first of them were the Eretrians during the period 775-750 BC., then the Corinthians 734-602 and finally the Romans from 229 BC. until 337 AD. The protection of the Byzantine period lasted for Corfu Island for fourteen centuries. From the year 337 AD until the year 1267 Corfu Island was a part of the Byzantine Empire. For about five centuries Corfu Island was under the protection of Venice 1386-1797. In between those centuries the Turks tried five times to conquer Corfu Island without success.(1431-1537-1571-1573-1716). Just before the beginning of the 19th century the French Republicans, led by Napoleon Bonaparte occupied Corfu Island. After the French were defeated and Napoleon fell down in 1814, Corfu and all the other Ionian Islands were occupied from the British for 50 years (1814-1864). Finally in May 21st 1864 Corfu and all the other Ionian Islands were united with Greece. In this day the Greek flag was raised at the old Fortress the "Castelo da Mare".

When the Napoleonic French occupied the island in 1797, the Corfiots initially welcomed them with enthusiasm, believing that French revolutionary principles meant that the lower classes would be treated better than under Venetian rule . But this was not the case. The French imposed heavy taxes on the people, though they did introduce a system of primary education and a printing house. But two years later a combined Russian and Turkish fleet captured the island after four months of fighting, and Corfu became the capital of the puppet Septinsular Republic which included all the Ionian islands. Then in 1807 when Russia and France signed the Treaty of Tilsit, Corfu and the other Ionian islands once again reverted to Napoleon . This time around the French took more of an interest in local development, establishing the first Ionian Academy, importing printing presses and introducing new crops like potatoes and tomatoes.

In exile with his mother in Switzerland, he enrolled in the Swiss Army, trained to become an officer, and wrote a manual of artillery (his uncle Napoleon Bonaparte had become famous as an artillery officer). He also began writing about his political philosophy. He published his Rêveries politiques or "political dreams" in 1833 at the age of 25, followed in 1834 by Considérations politiques et militaires sur la Suisse ("Political and military considerations about Switzerland"), followed in 1839 by Les Idées napoléoniennes ("Napoleonic Ideas"), a compendium of his political ideas which was published in three editions and eventually translated in six languages. His doctrine was based upon two ideas: universal suffrage and the primacy of the national interest. He called for a "Monarchy which procures the advantages of the Republic without the inconveniences", a regime "strong without despotism, free without anarchy, independent without conquest." [17]

He was moved to the Bureau of Topography of the Committee of Public Safety and sought unsuccessfully to be transferred to Constantinople in order to offer his services to the Sultan . [43] During this period, he wrote the romantic novella Clisson et Eugénie , about a soldier and his lover, in a clear parallel to Bonaparte's own relationship with Désirée. [44] On 15 September, Bonaparte was removed from the list of generals in regular service for his refusal to serve in the Vendée campaign. He faced a difficult financial situation and reduced career prospects. [45]
