Vasos Mavrovouniotis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Vasos Mavrovouniotis (Greek:Âáóïò Ìáõñïâïõíéùôçò) (1797(?)-1847) was a Serbian from Montenegro(Greek:Mavrovounio), who played a significant role in the Greek revolution against the Ottoman Empire in 1821.

He was born in Bjelopavlic in modern day Montenegro in 1795. Since his early youth he joined the Serbian rebel forces and regularly commanded raids across the Balkans. In 1821 he directed a force of 120 men of mixed Serbian, Montenegrian and Greek nationality and joined the early stages of the Greek revolution. His first stop was in central Greece where he met with Nikos Kriezotis, an old time Greek fellow warrior with whom he was a “Vlami”, meaning spiritual brother. This term comes from the ages-old practice in the Balkans where people could become like brothers by performing a specific ritual. In 1822 he participated in the fight against the Turks in Athens where he showed bravery and was widely accepted as one of the best fighters of its period.

In 1824 a Greek civil war erupted and Mavrovouniotis joined forces with the government mainly composed by Greeks he knew since the early stages of the revolution. For his commitment to the side that finally won the domestic conflict he was assigned the rank of the General and was given a force of 1,500men; a considerable army at that period. In the period between 1826-27 he was one of the few guerilla fighters not to be defeated by the Egyptian forces led by Imbrahim Pasha, that nearly destroyed the Greek forces. In the newly established Greek state in 1830’s he became a member of the elite that surrounded the first Greek King Otto from Bavaria. He died in 1847 and was widely admired by the Greek people as one of the leaders of the Cause and as one of the leading figures of the independent state.[1]

Mavrovouniotis married Helena Pangalou from a very well known Greek family in 1826, and she followed him throughout the harsh campaigns in the Greek mountains against the Turks. She died in 1891 and they had a son called Timotheos Vassos-Mavrovounitis. He also became a general and was decorated in numerous occasions for his duties and success as a serviceman in the second half of the 19th century.

That doesn't look like a serb name, however.

Serbs can only play the role of drone soldiers in the battlefield.


Girah Khan, If all you want to do is insult people take it to the Turkish or FYROM forums. This is your 2nd warning! One more and your post will be deleted for 3 days!

Greek resistence?

I thought it was all about French, British and Russian military assults, not about some Rum peasants.

- Is that what they tell you to comfort you? Do not embarass yourself. These same states you claim of "helping" greek resistance had driven members of resistance to their slaughter for their benefit. The glass was already filled when they add the last drop. :P

Turxanthos, why are you instigating and Trolling??

I had higher expectations from you to not act like Turk79 and Kanuni!

I am going to let this one slide but next time it will be your first warning!


P.S.

You know very well that it was the Greeks who started their own revolution against the Ottomans! The foreign powers stayed neutral in the affair until Navarino! Look it up if you don't know it!

All the foreign powers did was to try and ensure that no attrocities were commited by the Turks against the Greeks or other Christians.The other powers even stopped the massacre of Turks who survived an assault on a city by the Greeks. So why do you keep insisting that the Greeks did nothing?

Finally, the Powers did not want to get involved because they did not want the Status Quo to change and they believed that if they did get involved then all hell would break loose in the Balkans. It was the Greek people who started and maintained the war, even while splitting into two groups and fighting amongst each other for control of the war and any revenue generated from taxes and donations.


Does that last part sound like anything else involving ancient Greek history?
If the Modern Greeks have nothing to do with the Ancient Greeks then why do they still act the same(always fighting amongst each other)?? It seems to be something in the DNA!

Look at the Greek forum!

Most of the posts are designed for trolling, and you warn me?

I think you should read the forum rules once again before giving others warnings.

Turxanthos,

the Greeks in this forum in most cases are just responding to
comments(trolling) commited by Kanuni and Turk79 and Giray Khan!

I have even given Greeks warning as late as 3 days ago! So please don't tell me how to moderate.



Now if you want to discuss what you posted and what I responded to you then lets discuss that, but if you don't, please refrain from acting like your fellow countrymen on this and other forums!

Vasos Maurovouniotis was Montengrin with origin name Vaso Brajovic from Montengrin "tribe" Bjelopavlici (central Montenegro). Vaso is short for Vasilije or greek Vasileus. So Vaso(s) was NOT Serb or "Albanian Greek from Montenegro" or whatever he was MONTENEGRIN.

Shhh, you might hurt their neoeleni feelings.


"Hahahahaha.... Montenegrin????? Wtf is montenegrin?

Tito's nation? What is a Serb, a pig herder's nation? Karagorge was a pig herder right? I guess the only thing left to answer is who were the pigs in this pig herder's invisioned nation? Maybe you bre cetiri kuraca?

The anti-slav behaviour of some of you serbs(not all because most serbs are good decent people and not the pigs we see here) here is a disgrace for all serbs and slavs, pickavi materna.

Pavlinke, I am for the """FYROM""" nation. You want to talk about stats, with Kosovo as a part of Serbia, how much is the percentage of shiptari in your land do you think? 15%? 20%? Tikvo, they will end up swallowing you before they come even close to us, they have already taken you historical regions, and there are much more shiptari in the territory of Serbia and Kosovo then """FYROM""".

http://www.serbia-info.com/facts/population.html>
"The last 1991 Census puts the population of Serbia at 9,779,000, which is 94,1 per cent of the population of Yugoslavia. The population density runs to 111 inhabitants per square km. Serbs make up 66 per cent of the population, Albanians 17 per cent, Hungarians 3.5 per cent, followed by Romanians, Romanies, Slovaks, Croats, Bulgarians, Turks, and others."

Pickice, percentage-wise, there were almost as much shiptari in Serbia in 1991 as there are in """FYROM""" today.
