Singapore was known as Temasek, which was then governed by Malaysia. Sir Stamford Raffles then got the governance of Singapore from the rightful Malaysian Sultan Hussein, and developed Singapore into an important port in the trade between China and India.

During World War 2, Singapore fell to the Japanese for two and a half years. It was then known as Syonan-to .

After WW2, Singapore attempted to break free from British colonization, as many were unhappy with the British for being unable to protect Singapore. Singapore first achieved self internal governence and then the British gave up the external governence in terms of army etc later on.

Singapore then went on to become a state of Malaysia, the new name of the former Malaya.

Singapore achieved independence in 1965, after it broke out of Malaysia.
