Iakovos "Yiakoumakis" Tombazis c. 1782-1829) was a merchant and ship-owner from the Greek island of Hydra who became the first Admiral of the Greek Navy, during the Greek War of Independence.
In 1818, he was initiated into the Filiki Eteria, which was preparing the ground for the revolt. When the war broke out, his fellow islanders made Tombazis admiral of the fleet of Hydra. He took part in several clashes against the Sultan's Navy in the eastern Aegean and soon realized that the Greek warships, being mostly converted and armed merchantmen, could not face the Ottoman ships of the line in conventional combat. He therefore proposed the use of fireships instead, and sent Dimitrios Papanikolis to burn the Turkish frigate Moving Mountain anchored at Eresos on Lesbos.

The image shows Mavrocordatos on the walls of Missolonghi, looking out to sea as a canon is pulled into position.

The first siege of Missolonghi ,October 25 – December 31, 1822 was laid after the Battle of Peta ,Omer Vryonis initially tried to take the town by negotiations, against the opinion of Reşid Mehmed and Yussuf Pasha of Patras. The besieged Greeks took advantage of this, dragging the negotiations out until November 8, when they were reinforced by sea with over 1,500 fighters. Then the Ottomans realized their mistake, and resumed the siege in earnest. After a month of bombardment and sorties, the main Ottoman assault was set for the night of December 24, before Christmas, calculating that the Greeks would be caught by surprise. The Greeks however were warned by Vryonis' Greek secretary, and the attack failed. The siege was subsequently lifted on December 31.
Missolonghi remained under Greek control, and resisted another Ottoman attempt at its capture a year later. Its resistance achieved wider fame when Lord Byron arrived there, dying in the town of fever in April 1824. The city was besieged for a third and final time, resisting both Ottoman and Egyptian armies for almost a year, until its final fall on April 10, 1826.

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.

Black & white lithograph Plate 5 from Reinagle's "Illustrations of the Battle of Navarin." Printed on india paper, mounted, verso blank.
The view focuses on the Albion:
"The Albion, Captain Ommanney, anchored within pistol shot of the Turkish line of battle ship, and a double-banked frigate; on casting anchor, she swung aboard a large frigate of 56 guns, which she boarded and carried.The Turks ran below, and fired up the hatchways, and wounded some of the men of the feet; they afterwards set fire to the ship, and her cables were scarcely disengaged when she blew up, with great part of her crew on board.
The Albion's fire was so destructive, that in half an hour she entirely disabled the Turkish liner, whose crew cut her cables and deserted her in boats; after drifting past the Azoff, this ship ran ashore with her fore top-mast stay-sail, and was burnt and blown up on Sunday.
The two line of battle ships that had engaged the Asia and Genoa drifted past the Albion toward the close of the action, and fired occasional guns as they past_ Captain C.J. Stevens killed, with 10 men, 50 wounded"
