Don Pacifico Affair (1847) (2 Subjects)

The house of Don Pacifico, Portuguese consul in Athens, which was sacked by antisemitic groups in 1847. The Greek government's refusal to compensate Don Pacifico eventually led to a British intervention (as Don Pacifico was a British national) and the temporary blockade of the port of Piraeus.


William Parler, Admiral of the British Navy, and head of the Piraeus blockade operation following the Don Pacifico affair, leaves Corfu for Cephalonia.
