History[]

Founded in 1323 by Italian explorer Luca di Aquilia from which the village then took its name of Citta di Luca. The village was abandoned in the early 1340s and was so for the next 30 years. The Kingdom of Milan renounced their claims on the Main Island and turned it to Sweden in the year 1368. Two years later arrived the first Swedish colonizers. Because of harsh climate during the summer the settlement was once more abandoned. The next to attempt colonization were the French, yet they too abandoned the island soon. In the year 1540 a series of attempts at settlements were funded by The Swedish King Gustav I Vasa. The colonization attempt was successful and Gustavia was founded. In the year 1913 the name of the city was changed to Aquili in honour of the first (unsuccessful)founder of the city and to mark distance from Sweden. This was changed in the year 1948 to Aquily to make it sound more "modern".
