LESVOS (MYTILINI) > HISTORY

History of Lesvos Mytilini East Aegean Greek Islands Greece

Archaeological excavations brought to light reveal that Lesvos has been inhabited since the late Neolithic times. From 1393 to 1184 BC it was inhabited by the Achaeans, while approximately around 1100 BC the Aeolians arrived.

Ιn the year 88 B.C. the island was conquered by the Romans. A period of limited autonomy followed from 62 B.C. to 70 A.D., while after the division of the Roman Empire, to Western and Eastern, Lesvos was incorporated in its Eastern section or the Byzantine nation.

During the Byzantine period (324-1453), the island was frequently attacked and looted by Saracens, Venetians and Catalans. In 1354 the Genovese Francisco Gateluzo married the sister of the Emperor John Paleologos the 4th and received the island as a dowry.

The Ottoman occupation (1462-1912) was a period of hardship.

In 1912 Lesvos was liberated by the Greek fleet and was given to Greece by the London and Athens conventions in 1914. The Greek rights on the island were formally recognized by the Sevres and Lausanne conventions in 1923.
