The Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution referred to by Greeks in the 19th century was a successful war of independence waged by Greek revolutionaries against the Ottoman Empire between 1821 and 1830. The Greeks were later assisted by Great Britain, France and Russia, while the Ottomans were aided by their North African vassals, particularly the eyelet of Egypt. The war led to the formation of modern Greece. The revolution is celebrated by Greeks around the world as Independence Day on 25 March.


Heroine : Laskarina Bouboulina

Laskarina "Bouboulina" Pinotsis 11 May 1771 – 22 May 1825) was a Greek naval commander, heroine of the Greek War of Independence in 1821, and allegedly first woman-admiral of the Imperial Russian Navy.

“In her company, the insecure were filled with resolve, while the brave who came face to face with her, backed down…” wrote historian Ioannis Filimon of Laskarina Bouboulina (1821-1829), the hero of the Greek war of independence from the Ottoman Empire. Her reputation for acts of valor resonated beyond Greece, having also been the subject of Russian fascination.

Bouboulina lived a fascinating life. She was born in a Constantinople prison - her mother would visit her father, who participated in the anti-Turkish rebellion of 1769-1770.

Laskarina’s second husband also took part in the Russo-Turkish war of 1806-1812. After his death at the hands of Algerian pirates, Laskarina became heir to a large inheritance. She could have spent her days living in comfort, raising her six children. However, Bouboulina decided to continue in her family’s footsteps and joined the Greek revolution.

Even before the uprising, Bouboulina was active in financially supplying the secret organization ‘Filiki Eteria’ (“Society of Friends”), which fought for Greek independence. By the start of the Greek revolution in 1821, she was already commanding her own fleet, consisting of 8 warships, headed by the 18-canon flagship corvette, the ‘Agamemnon’. Despite being more than 50 years of age at the time, she personally took part in the fighting. Her forces helped free several cities and capture the well-defended Palamidi Fortress, in Nafplio. The city had become the first capital of modern Greece.

In May 1821, during the battle of Argos, she lost her son, Yiannis Giannuza. The historian Anargyros Hatzianargyros, who bore witness to the fighting, later wrote: “It is indeed a rare sight in the history of man: a woman takes up arms, a wealthy woman who decides to sacrifice on the altar of the homeland her ships, her money and her sons… she had the heart of a lion.”

Despite her amazing heroism, Bouboulina’s death did not occur on the battlefield. Laskarina Bouboulina was killed in 1825 as the result of a family feud in Spetses.

After her death, Tsar Alexander I of Russia granted Bouboulina the honorary rank of Admiral of the Russian Navy, making her, until recently, the only woman in world naval history to hold this title. In 2018 she was granted the title of Rear Admiral in the Hellenic Navy.
