United Kingdom
The Republic of Venice had controlled the islands for 5 or 6 centuries, until Venice was conquered by Napoleon in 1797; control of the islands shifted several times until they were ceded to UK protection by the Treaty of Paris in 1815 after France's defeat, and were eventually reunited with Greece following that country's establishing its independence from Turkey in 1830.
