The New Greek State
The Greek revolutionary war ended, and the first few years found the young nation in a state of flux and uncertainty, and with a never-ending barrage of political infighting and controversies. The Greeks for sure had won their freedom and independence, but were still learning how to build and maintain a coherent state. The placement of Kapodistrias as Governor was not well-received by everyone. The very first capital of the new nation was Aegina, where Kapodistrias visited. Soon after, the capital relocated to the city of Nafplion. Greece then introduced its first-ever currency, the Phoenix.
