Details The figure that dominated the naval operations of the Greek War of Independence (1821-1830) was Laskarina Bouboulina. When her second Spetsiot husband, D. Bouboulis, was killed during a battle with Algerian pirate ships in 1811, Bouboulina took over his trading operations and the preparation for the revolution.

She became a member of "Filiki Etaireia", a secret organization which was preparing the revolution all over Europe and had the "Agamemnon", her flagship, and three more war ships built at her own expense. Her fleet took part in many naval battles and dominated the Aegean creating problems to the, by far superior, Turkish fleet
