Black & white lithograph portrait of Andreas Miaoulis from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank. Printed signature in Greek

Andreas Vokos, nicknamed Miaoulis (1768 – 1835),
was an admiral and politician who commanded Greek naval forces during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1829).
Miaoulis, who was of Arvanite origin, was born in Euboea and settled on the island of Hydra east of the Morea and was known among his fellow islanders as a trader in corn who had gained wealth and made a popular use of his money. He had been a merchant captain, and was chosen to lead the naval forces of the islands when they rose against the government of the Sultan. Miaoulis contributed in every way possible to the cause of the resistance against the Turks. He expended the money he had made from his wheat-shipping business during the Napoleonic Wars.
Between May 1825 and January 1826,Miaoulis led the Greeks to victory over the Turks in skirmishes off Modon, Cape Matapan, Suda, and Cape Papas.
As early as 1822 Miaoulis was appointed navarch,or admiral, of the swarm of small vessels which formed the insurgent fleet. He commanded the expedition sent to take revenge for the massacre of Chios in the same year. He was victorious at the Battle of Nauplia in September.

In 1824, after the conquest of Psara by the Turks, he commanded the Greek forces which prevented the further progress of the Sultan's fleet, though at the cost of the loss of many fire ships and men. But in the same year he was unable to prevent the Egyptian forces from occupying Navarino, though he harassed them with some success. In 1825 he succeeded in carrying stores and reinforcements into Missolonghi, when it was besieged for the second time, though he could not avert its fall.

When independence had been obtained, Miaoulis in his old age was entangled in the civil conflicts of his country, as an opponent of Capodistrias and the Russian Party : he seized some of the principal ships of the Greek fleet at Poros in August 1831, including the Hellas, and destroyed them during the counter-attack of the Russian fleet.

He was one of the deputation sent to invite King Otho to accept the crown of Greece, and was made rear-admiral and then vice-admiral by him. Otto also awarded him with the Grand Cross of the Order of the Redeemer. Clean and bright; light spotting.

Laskarina Bouboulina.

Bobolina. Friedal, Adam de Bobolina. "Bobolina, the distinguished Heroine from Spezia". London " In course of Publication in London by A. Friedal & sold by the principal book & printsellers in town & Country." August 1826
Black & white lithograph portrait of Laskarina Bouboulina from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank.
The portrait bust, shows a romanticised image of Bouboulina, replacing the previous portrait of the first edition; she is noticeably younger and prettier, wearing a sarik or turban, against a background of trees and a mosque.
possibly reflecting her early life in Constantinople. thus the image can be considered a first edition; Friedal would refine it even further in later editions of the work.

Bouboulina was born in a prison in Constantinople; she originated from the Arvanite community of the island of Hydra, daughter of Stavrianos Pinotsis, a captain from Hydra island. The Ottomans had imprisoned Pinotsis for his part in the failed Orlof Revolution of 1769–1770 against the Ottoman rule. Her father died soon afterward and the mother and child returned to Hydra. They moved to the island of Spetses four years later when her mother married Dimitrios Lazarou-Orlof.

She married twice, first Dimitrios Yiannouzas and later the wealthy shipowner and captain Dimitrios Bouboulis, taking his surname. Bouboulis was killed in battle against Algerian pirates in 1811. Now 40 years old, Bouboulina took over his fortune and his trading business and had four more ships built at her own expense, including the large warship Agamemnon.

In 1816, the Ottomans tried to confiscate Bouboulina's property because her second husband had fought for the Russians against the Turks in the Turko-Russian wars. She sailed to Constantinople to meet Russian ambassador Count Pavel Strogonov and seek his protection. In recognition of Bouboulis's service to the Russians, Strogonov sent her to safety in Crimea. She also met with the mother of Mahmud II, who afterward reportedly convinced her

Allegedly Bouboulina joined the Filiki Etaireia, an underground organization that was preparing Greece for revolution against Ottoman rule. She would have been one of few women but she is not named in historical members lists. She bought arms and ammunition at her own expense and brought them secretly to Spetses in her ships, to fight "for the sake of my nation." Construction of the ship Agamemnon was finished in 1820. She bribed Turkish officials to ignore the ship's size and it was later one of the largest warships in the hands of Greek rebels. She also organized her own armed troops, composed of men from Spetses. She used most of her fortune to provide food and ammunition for the sailors and soldiers under her command.

On 13 March 1821 Bouboulina raised on the mast of Agamemnon her own Greek flag, based on the flag of the Comnenus dynasty of Byzantine emperors. The people of Spetses revolted on 3 April and later joined forces with ships from other Greek islands. Bouboulina sailed with eight ships to Nafplion and began a naval blockade. Later she took part in the naval blockade and capture of Monemvasia and Pylos. She arrived at Tripolis in time to witness its fall on 11 September 1821 and to meet general Theodoros Kolokotronis.During the ensuing defeat of the Ottoman garrison, Bouboulina saved most of the female members of the sultan's household.

In 1823 Emperor Alexander I of Russia granted Bouboulina the rank of Admiral of the Russian Navy Clean and bright; light spotting.

Lykourgos Logothetis.

John Logotheti. Friedal, Adam de John Logotheti. "John Logotheti Senator of the Executive Body in Greece". London " In course of Publication in London by A. Friedal & sold by the principal book & printsellers in town & Country." June 1826
Black & white lithograph portrait of John' Lykourgos' Logothetes from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank.
The portrait bust, shows Logothetis, seated holding a document and spectacles. Printed signature in Greek.
Logothetis real name Georgios Paplomatas was born in Samos in 1772; after studying in Constantinople he moved to Wallachia where he became secratary to Constantine Ypsilantisand later to to Alexander Soutsos as Logotheti. Eventually returned to Constaninople and finally to Samos, but due to polical fights was forced in to, exile on Mont Athos. He was to return after 6 years, but again fell foul of his opponents and was condemned to death; escaping to Smyna where he joined the Filiki Eteria. In 1821 at the start of the Greek revolution Lycurgus returned to Samos, where residents welcomed him as savior and declared him a political and military leader of the island. His military and organizational skills resulted in the successful repulse of three raids against Samos in 1821, 1824 and 1826. He was also part of the failed rebellion on neighbouring Chios in March 1822.
After the success of the Greek revolution. In 1828, the island became formally incorporated into the Hellenic State under Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias, as part of the province of the Eastern Sporades, but the London Protocol of 1830 excluded Samos from the borders of the independent Greek state.
The Samians refused to accept their re-subordination to the Sultan, and Logothetis declared Samos to be an independent state, governed as before under the provisions of the 1821 constitution. Finally, due to the pressure of the Great Powers, Samos was declared an autonomous, tributary principality under Ottoman suzerainty. The Samians still refused to accept this decision until an Ottoman fleet enforced it in May 1834, forcing the revolutionary leadership and a part of the population to flee to independent Greece, where they settled near Chalkis. Logothetis moved to Athens where he was honoured by the Greek State and became a Senator. He died in 1850. Clean and bright; light spoting.

Full length portrait of Mavrocordato, standing in his office; the first time this image was published. Text below in English & French The first time this image was published
Alexandros Mavrokordatos ( 1791- 1865, )
He was a member of the Filiki Eteria and was among the Phanariot Greeks who hastened to the Morea on the outbreak of the War of Independence in 1821. He was active in endeavouring to establish a regular government, and in January, 1822 he was elected by the First National Assembly at Epidaurus as the "President of the Executive".
He commanded the advance of the Greeks into western Central Greece the same year, and suffered a serious defeat at Peta on July 16, but retrieved this disaster somewhat by his successful resistance to the First Siege of Missolonghi (Nov. 1822 to Jan. 1823). His English sympathies brought him, in the subsequent strife of factions, into opposition to the "Russian" party headed by Demetrius Ypsilanti and Kolokotronis; and though he held the portfolio of foreign affairs for a short while under the presidency of Petrobey (Petros Mavromichalis), he was compelled to withdraw from affairs until February 1825, when he again became a Secretary of State. The landing of Ibrahim Pasha followed, and Mavrocordatos again joined the army, barely escaping capture in the disaster at Sphacteria, on May 9, 1825, by swimming to Navarino.
After the fall of Missolonghi (April 22, 1826) he went into retirement, until President John Capodistria made him a member of the committee for the administration of war material, a position he resigned in 1828. After Kapodistria's murder (October 9, 1831) and the resignation of his brother and successor, Augustinos Kapodistrias (April 13, 1832), Mavrocordatos became Minister of Finance. He was Vice-President of the National Assembly at Argos (July, 1832), and was appointed by King Otto as his Minister of Finance, and in 1833 Premier. Spotted particularly to India paper; short tear repaired to lower blank margin.
