The tomb of the great military leader of 1821 Theodoros Koloktronis at the Athens first cemetery . #Kolokotronis was instrumental in securing a Greek victory against the Turks in the fight for independence. 1770 - 1843.
The inscription on his tomb translated into English reads ....Softly Wayfarer
For here sleeps the old man of the Morea
His slumber do not disturb

With his coming to Morea (1779), the Ottoman Admiral Gazi Hasan Cezayirli imediately begun his preparations, but he could not find more Turks there to join his forces.
Nikolaos Mavrogenis his Dragoman then came up with the idea to seek alliance with the local Peloponnesians (Moraites) & Hasan agreed.
They edited buyurdı "an orient document, in particular an order", with which they invited the local Greek chieftains (klephts) to join Hasan's forces "We invite you to join us & appoint you to kill the Arnauts (Albanians) without fear. Their loots are yours to take. We demand you to deliver to us only their heads & from now on you are forgiven for your actions of the past".
The Greeks were very suspicious at first, but then most of them were convinced by Nikolaos Mavrogenis & they started to arrive at the Ottoman camp, there the Turks welcomed them with compliments & fancy presents.
The only who did not go to the camp was Constantis Kolokotronis (father of Theodoros Kolokotronis) along with some captains like Alexandros Taras, because they distrusted the Turks.
Written by Theodoros Kolokotronis in his "Memoirs": To my father, Captain Hasan send a private letter "Come & join me to exterminate the Albanians, so the Romios (Roman) can reclaim his rights back". My father marched to Trikorfa (the three peaks) with one thousand men & waited there. He did not go to the camp, out of fear, because some years earlier in 1974 the Turks killed his father Ioannis by cutting both his hands & feet as a punishment for his participation to the Orlov revolt.
Hasan then marched from Mylous (Mills) with his 6.000 Ottomans & the 5.000 Peloponnesians that joined him. They stopped at Doliana, near Tripolitsa where most of the Albanian forces been gathered.
Hasan send a letter once more to Constantis to take his men join & kowtow him (express his submission).
My father responded that its no time for "kowtow", its a time of crisis, we are here at Trikorfa in order to repel/restrain the retreat of the Albanians out of the Morea.
Hasan then was convinced & send to my father ammunition & expensive presents for him & the men.

- Theódoros Kolokotrónis
► This bronze equestrian statue sculpted by Lazaros Sochos, is of probably the most revered protagonists of Greece's struggles against the Ottoman Empire, Theódoros Kolokotrónis, General-in-Chief of irregular forces during the Greek War of Independence 1821-1829.
Of the two copies made, one was placed in Nafplio in 1901, in the area now called the Botanical Garden or Kolokotrónis Park, and in 1904 a second copy (this one), on the corner of Stadiou and Kolokotróni Street in Athens, right in front of the then Parliament House, now National History Museum. Apart from it's historical significance, what I find fascinating about this statue, is the connection between the material it is made from and Kolokotróni himself... Extraordinarily so, it was sculptured with recycled bronze from melted down cannons taken from the Palamidi fortress in Nafplio which were actually fired against the Ottoman forces during the war of independence. Now isn't that cool!?

Theodoros Kolokotronis (April 1770 – 4 February 1843) was a Greek general and the pre-eminent leader of the Greek War of Independence (1821–1829) against the Ottoman Empire. Kolokotronis's greatest success was the defeat of the Ottoman army under Mahmud Dramali Pasha at the Battle of Dervenakia in 1822. In 1825, he was appointed commander-in-chief of the Greek forces in the Peloponnese. Today, Kolokotronis ranks among the most revered of the protagonists of Greece's War of Independence.

The mountain man of Moria #kolokotronis

Вчера была в Нафплионе. Поразила крепость на вершине горы - Паламиди. Она была построена для обороны города в 1711-1714 гг. Ведь Нафплион был первой столицей Греции 😮 Я даже не знала об этом.. 🤔
Крепость состоит из восьми отдельных бастионов, расположенных по оси с запада на восток через хребет горы. Бастионы расположены на разной высоте, но с таким расчетом, что каждый мог не только сражаться отдельно, но и быть поддержанным с других бастионов. Я даже не знаю, обошла ли я все 🙄 Больше двух часов хотьбы, куча лабиринтов.. Дух захватывало (я даже спионерила камушек, который просился на память 😂) Видно, что были помещения для войск, в центральном дворике построена позднейшая церковь Св. Андрея. Она действующая. Когда ставила свечки, столько эмоций переполняло. Потому что церковь рядом с местом заточения Теодороса Колокотрониса, героя освободительной борьбы с турками. Десять лет он провел в каменной норе, высота входа в которую  около метра. Конечно я была в этой "камере". Ни окошка, ничего. Как слышала, спал он на камнях. Первое, что пришло на ум, когда увидела - узник замка Иф.. Страшное зрелище.. 😢
Моё путешествие по Греции продолжается 😉 Рада увиденному 😊

About to pay a visit to the Palamidi fortress in Nafplio during the 4-day classical tour of Greece. Palamidi was constructed in 1687 by the Venetians and it was conquered by the Ottomans (Turks) in 1715. Finally it was freed by the Greeks during the Greek revolution in 1822. It is also known for being the prison of war hero, Theodore Kolokotronis. #palamidi #nafplio #argolis #4dayclassicaltour #kolokotronis #greekrevolution #greecetours #athenstransfers #athenstours #magictours #greece www.magictoursathens.gr
