150 YEARS FROM THE UNIFICATION OF THE IONIAN ISLANDS WITH GREECE
The unification of the Ionian Islands with Greece was the first expansion of the modern Greek State’s borders.
After centuries of foreign rule under the Venetians, French, Russians and British, the islands became an integral part of the national territory in 1864, when the British ceded them to Greece on the occasion of the accession of King George I to the Greek throne.
