The Civil Commissioner of Malta (Maltese: Kummissarju Ċivili ta' Malta) was an official who ruled Malta during the French blockade and later the British protectorate period between 1799 and 1813. Upon the end of the Protectorate and the creation of the Crown Colony of Malta in 1813, this office was replaced by that of the Governor, who represented the Government of the United Kingdom.
