Ionian Islands[]

The Ionian Islands are a group of islands in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. Their history as a distinct region dates back to their centuries-long rule by the Republic of Venice, while the rest of the country was absorbed by the Ottoman Empire. When Venice fell to Napoleon in 1797, the islands briefly came under French rule before being held by the Russians, who supervised the islanders in setting up their own "Septinsular Republic" - the first Greek territory to be governed by Greeks in almost 350 years.

Antonios Komoutos[]

After the death of Count Spyridion Georgios Theotokis, the "Prince" of the Septinsular Republic in 1803, a new head of state of the Republic was to be elected. Under the new constitution, the election was for the president of the senate, who would take the title of Prince. A noble from the island of Zakynthos, Antonios Komoutos was elected at the age of 55. His tenure as Ionian leader saw a flurry of legislative and administrative activity: between January and March 1804, laws concerning local administration, shipping, rural communes, and education were passed, the ecclesiastical administration was reformed, and the ministries were established. The Republic now became truly a proper state, and aroused the expectations and hopes of the Greek intelligentsia.

Dawn of Man[]

May the days of your reign be peaceful, Antonios Komoutos, Prince of these Ionian Islands and President of the Senate of the Septinsular Republic! Since ancient times the islands have been the gateway to the Adriatic, the seven beating hearts of Greek trade, commerce, and conflict. Never successfully held by the Ottoman state, the islands instead remained for centuries under the rule of Venice, cultivating their own distinct culture and insulating the European seas against the Turkish tide. During the upheaval in Europe brought about by Napoleon's conquests, the islands were brought under Russian control and granted self-government - a first for the Greek people in more than 300 years.
