King Otto (Greek: Όθων,  German: Otto Friedrich Ludwig von Wittelsbach; 1815 – 1867) was a Bavarian prince who ruled as King of Greece from the establishment of the Kingdom of Greece on 6 Feb 1832, under the Convention of London, until he was deposed on October 1862.
Yiannis Makriyiannis (Greek: Γιάννης Μακρυγιάννης; 1797–1864), born Ioannis Triantaphyllou (Ιωάννης Τριανταφύλλου, Iōánnēs), was a Greek merchant, military officer, politician and author, best known today for his Memoirs. Starting from humble origins, he joined the Greek Fight for independence, achieving the rank of general and leading his men to notable victories, most notably the successful defense of Nafplio. Following Greek independence, he had a tumultuous public career, playing a prominent part in the granting of the first Constitution of the Kingdom of Greece and later being sentenced to death and pardoned.
