History of Kefalonia

During Mycenaean time the island of Kefalonia seems to have been very rich. Later on the men of the island are mentioned in wars against the Persians (5th cent. BC) and there were alliances with several other city-states like Athens, Corinth and Sparta. In 188BC the Romans conquered Kefalonia and they sold its inhabitants as slaves and looted the island. The island also suffered pirate attacks many times through history.

At the end of the 12th century A.D the Francs conquered the Ionian islands, and were to stay until the Turks defeated them in the 15th century. Then followed Venetian rule from AD 1500 to 1797. Kefalonia was to suffer several Turkish attacks, and in 1797 Napoleons army invaded the island. A year later the British help the Russian/Turkish army take over. In 1807 the French came back, and two years later the British seized power.

In 1864 the island was finally liberated, but was to be occupied by Italian and German military during the Second World War.
