The Battle of Navarino

Abstract

The Greek Revolution was a genuine popular uprising against Ottoman rule, but it required foreign intervention in 1827, the first of many, to ensure its success. The Battle of Navarino and the subsequent treaties imposed on the Ottomans made clear that the most significant decisions in the eastern Mediterranean were made in the capitals of northern Europe. This lecture will discuss the Greek Revolution in its global perspective. Why did the Europeans become involved in the war? Why did they bother? Why did they intervene in the 1820s, and not in the 1770s, or the 1450s? It will explain why Europe made Greece possible and the terms for its intervention.
