The famous marathon that we know of today started in Greece! The first marathon actually took place at the Battle of Marathon. The Greeks won because of Pheideppes who greatly affected the war. After the Greek army defeated the Persian army, the commander, Miltiades, told his messenger to send word to Athens that the Persians were headed their way. Pheideppes ran the distance between Marathon and Athens he delivered the message that the Persians were on their way. The marathon was born after his famous run!

Such a fascinating story - some historians believe that Phedippides ran even longer than that - but despite that, the marathon race is still a nice tribute to this. The distance from Marathon to Athens, I believe, is around 26 miles?
 

Why Alexander the Great was so powerful

We know that great men do not just come from nowhere. Alexander the Great was molded into the ruler that conquered all of Persia by his father and many great philosophers, namely Aristotle. His father, King Phillip had already established a very successful empire that was already expanding. Once Alexander became old enough, the empire was handed to him and he was able to quickly build it into one of the greatest empires of all time.

Learn about the history of Cyprus 🇨🇾

As with all Greek territories, Cyprus has undergone many changes of power throughout history, starting from the ancient times. The first change of power came with the Phoenicians followed by the Persian empire. After approximately 200 years of Persian occupation, Alexander the Great took control of Cyprus. Cyprus was then a part of the Byzantine empire, as was all of Greece, until it was occupied by the British Empire, and then the Ottoman Empire (as with all of Greece as well). After Greece and Cyprus became independent from Ottoman rule, Cyprus was then again conquered by the British until it became independent in 1960. As you can see, the history is a long list of changes in power, leaving Cyprus with thousands of years of occupation and control. This is an unfortunate truth, but something that is important that we should be aware of.

The Athens Polytechnic uprising is a critical moment in Greeces history

This uprising was led by students who opposed the military occupation of Greece in the 1970s. The students took over the Athens Polytechnic University building in protest of the occupation, and were faced with a very strong and violent response from the Greek military. Today, protesters from across the country will rebel against the government in memory of the uprising and to make their voices heard about present day issues. For anyone who is recommended in Greek history, I recommend that you read more about this uprising and its impact on Greece's politics.

What life was like during the Greek military junta

The junta was a strong military dictatorship in the late 60's and early 70's in Greece. This was a very dark period for many Greeks, especially those who were socialist, communist, or anything leaning towards the left. The government also targeted anyone who was against the brutal dictatorship, even if they were not politically left leaning. These people would be hunted down by the military and locked up in jail or beaten or even killed. After the junta was dissolved, a democracy was established in Greece.
