Lord Byron

One of the largest friend of the greeks was Lord Byron, during the Revolution of 1821 stayed on the island of Kefalonia, specifically at the village of Lakithra. He was born in London in 1788, to the aristocratic family of Captain John Byron and his second wife Catherine Gordon. In 1823 in London he prepared an Assistance Commission for the fight of Greeks against the Turks and was chosen to represent the committee ‘Vyronas’ (Byron). His first stop was the island of Kefalonia, where he stayed for 6 months in the house of ‘Komi Deladetsima’, a close friend of the hero of the Revolution, ‘Mavrokordatou’.

Lord Byron died a year later in Mesologi. During his stay, however, he developed a special relationship with a site in Lakithra. There is a rock, known as the ‘Bryon’s Rock’. This is a place where Byron used to sit and ponder and be inspired for his poems in an area with a magnificent view across the Ionian all the way to Zakynthos. Today there is a sign on the main road that leads the visitor to this, taking you back in time to a turbulent era for the nation which nevertheless revealed important personalities
