Fact of the Day: Modern Greece

Despite it's reputation from the days of Ancient Greece, the nation of Greece was part of the Ottoman Empire from 1453 until the 1820's. The Greek War of Independence broke out in the 19th century, and it resulted in a victory for the people of Greece.

  2. Well the Greeks and Macedonians ruled all of what became the Ottoman Empire
    for hundreds of years, Alexander the Great.
    The area is a hotch-potch of different ancient rulers - always was and always will be.
    Stability of sorts thankfully prevails at present.
