The city was founded around the VII century BC. When the French kings of the dynasty de Lusignan were in power, the city became known as Nicosia, in the French manner. Once the power passed to the Venetians, the city of Nicosia has become more like a fortress that served to defend the city. Now the city is divided into two parts, the Greek and Turkish.
