Kalergi, the Greek patriot, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Kalergi, the Greek patriot, 1844. Portrait of Greek soldier and politician Dimitrios Kallergis, one of the most important protagonists of the 3 September 1843 Revolution. Kalergi...who has taken so distinguished a position in the recent revolution in Greece...was bom in Candia, and is now about 38 years of age. Throughout the war of independence, he distinguished himself by his remarkable bravery. By a coup de main he succeeded in taking Karabusa in 1825, with a few men; and at the battle fought between the Greeks and Turks in the plain of Athens in 1827, having been severely wounded, he was made a prisoner. The bravest of the Cretans, among whom was his brother Emanuel, were slain around him. By the Seraskier's orders he was brought into his presence on a man's back; and after asking him some questions, he ordered him to be decapitated - a ceremony that had been already performed on several hundreds. The Albanian Bey, however, who had taken him prisoner, claimed him as his own; and the commotion this individual raised on seeing himself about to be deprived of the chance of making a profit out of his prisoner was so great, that the Seraskier at last consented to spare his life, and contented himself with slitting off one of his ears to send to Constantinople'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

Joan of Arc, 1902. Artist: Patten Wilson Featured Print

Joan of Arc, 1902. Artist: Patten Wilson

Joan of Arc, 1902. Joan of Arc, 15th century French patriot and martyr. Claiming divine inspiration, Joan of Arc (c1412-1431) persuaded Charles VII to declare himself King of France (at the time France was ruled by England under the terms of the Treaty of Troyes signed in 1420). Charles gave Joan authority over the French army at the Siege of Orleans in 1429, which proved to be the turning point in the Hundred Years War in favour of the French. Joan was captured at Compiegne in May 1430 by the Burgundians, who handed her over to the English. Tried on a charge of heresy, Joan was executed and martyred in 1431, but Charles VII went on to regain all of France from the English, with the exception of Calais. After a work by Patten Wilson (1869-1934). From A Child's History of England by Charles Dickens [J. M. Dent & Co., New York, 1902]. (Colorised black and white print)
