About the Event

The first in the Revolt & Revloution Lecture series outlines the events, prompted by the ‘Revolution of 1821', that led to the creation of the Kingdom of Greece in 1830.  It examines the factors that led to Greek armed opposition against the Ottoman presence in the Greek peninsula and explores the various triggers for the ‘1821’ revolt. It looks closely at the domestic situation on the ground and asks how a regionally fragmented Greek opposition was able to oppose the Turks at a time when certain Great European powers were  reluctant to see the demise of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkans.  In short, the presentation poses the question: Was the ‘1821 revolution’ a revolution with a clear vision from its declaration or a revolt that turned into a revolution which eventually led to the overthrow of the Ottomans with the intervention of the Great European powers?
