25th March of 1821

led to Greek Independence

On 25th March Greece is in a celebratory mood. Parades are held in every town and the Greek flag can be found almost everywhere. The beginning of Greece’s revolution in 1821 is celebrated.

The origins

In 1453, the Ottomans conquered the former Byzantine Empire after years of battle. As a result, the Greeks had to live under Ottoman rule for almost 400 years.

Throughout the four centuries, however, the Greeks never lost their identity and the Greek language, script and religion were proudly preserved.

Greece’s revolution

It was not until the 19th century, one could say inspired by the French Revolution, that the first political, secret groups emerged that planned the liberation of Greece from Turkokratia (the Turkish yoke). Greece’s revolution was officially proclaimed on 25 March 1821.
The bank holidays on 25 March is therefore the anniversary of this day, which is regarded as the beginning of the Greeks’ struggle for liberation against the Turks.

First, Peloponnese was reconquered. The revolution then spread to the Aegean, but the liberation struggle also spread on land.

Throughout Europe, poets, painters, composers and scientists followed the Greek revolution and stylised the Greek struggle for liberation as heroism.

The Battle of Navarino

After the Ottomans regained the upper hand in the course of the war, England, France and Russia supported the liberation struggle. On 20 October 1827, the Allied fleet finally sealed the defeat of the Ottoman Empire with the Battle of Navarino (Peloponnese), an event that is celebrated annually in Pylos‘ harbour, just a few minutes’ drive from Gialova Hills 6, and is without question worth a visit.

Subsequently, Russian troops invaded the Ottoman Empire and the Russo-Ottoman War raged from 1828-1830.

In 1830, the establishment of a small, independent Greek kingdom was finally agreed as part of the “London Protocol” of 3 February. Greece was free again after centuries of occupation by the Ottomans.
