Independence of greec eee

  2. 2. Causes of therevolution I:<br />The Greek War of Independence, also known as the Greek Revolution was a successful war of independence waged by the Greek revolutionaries between 1821 and 1830, with assistance later on from several European powers, against the Turkish Empire. They were assisted by their vassals as most of Greece was under Turkish rule. <br />During this time, there were numerous revolts by Greeks attempting to gain independence.<br />
  3. 3. Causes of therevolution II:<br /> REVOLTS:<br />The first of these revolts began on 6th March 1821 in the Danubian Principalities, but it was soon put down by the Turkish empire.<br /> The Greek Revolution was not an isolated event; numerous failed attempts at regaining independence took place throughout the history of the Ottoman era.<br />
  4. 4. Develop I:<br />Four centuries of servitude had not annihilated the distinctive features of the Greeks. Although subjected to the dominion of the Ottoman, they retained their nationality, their country, their language, their religion. Through this we perceive the means of ultimate salvation and the elements of future independence. <br />
  5. 5. Develop II :<br />Notwithstanding, the government of the Turks, peculiarly oppressive to a people of different manners, language, and religion, possessing the elements of independence, and feeling a strong sense of oppression and a desire of vengeance. The Greeks in some places had come to enjoy a very high degree of prosperity. Various circumstances had contributed in the early part of the nineteenth century to increase the material sources of national strength.<br />
  6. 6. Develop III:<br />With the help of a French expeditionary force, the Greeks drove the Turks out of Peloponnesiaand proceeded to capture part of Central Greece by 1828. As a result of years of negotiation, Greece was finally recognized as an independent nation in May 1832. <br />
  7. 7. Consequences I:<br />As a natural consequence of an influx of prosperity, and a necessarily extended intercourse with foreign nations, there had arisen in the islands of Greece and even in some of the principal towns of the continent an anxious desire to be readmitted into the European family to which they felt they belonged based on religion, language and recollections. These feelings were encouraged and strengthened by the intrigues of Russia, to which they mainly looked for assistance. <br />
  8. 8. Consequences II :<br />They did not, however, venture to express themselves openly. With all the military force in the country and all the fortresses in the hands of the Muslims, it was evident to the Greeks that open insurrection would involve them in one common ruin. In these circumstances, they formed secret societies. A great association was formed of Greeks, not only in their own territory, but in Constantinople, Bavaria, Austria, and Russia, the object of which was to effect the entire independence of Greece.<br />
  9. 9. Consequences III:<br />After a long war, in 1829 Greece proclaimed its independence. This desire for independence spread to the whole Balkan peninsula and from then on this area became a permanent source of tension before the beginning of the First World War.<br />
  10. 10. Consequences IIII:<br />In Europe, the Greek revolt aroused wide spread sympathy among the public, although at first it<br /> was met with lukewarm and negative reception from the Great Powers. Some historians argue <br /> that Ottoman atrocities were given wide coverage in Europe.<br />
