    Actually all the colonial powers were there. The Dutch, the Portuguese, the Spanish or the British. But who was there first that built the fortress?

    Your right, my bad
    I'm getting my history mixed up.

    Afonso de Albuquerque (Portuguese) ordered the building of a fortress that was finished in November 1511.

    On 14 January, 1641 the Dutch took possession of the fortress of Malacca.

    A refresh of history. The Portuguese came in 1509 but were defeated. Then came again at 1511 and won the records of "Conquering the greatest trading city in asia with <1000 soldiers" ... If i remember correctly.
