History of Rhodes
The island of Rhodes has been famous throughout the world for thousands of years and has been a vital site for trade and naval power throughout the Mediterranean. Due to the island’s economic and strategic importance, it has been fought over and occupied by many different cultures throughout history.
The Island rose to prominence during the Hellenistic age and developed into a maritime, commercial and cultural centre. The island was famous for the Colossus of Rhodes. Rhodes had a reputation for producing the finest sailors in the Mediterranean world and managed to maintain a balance of power in the eastern Mediterranean between the three great Hellenistic states.
This changed with the rise of Rome, who eventually forced the island to surrender its independence and become a permanent ally of Rome and part of the Empire. After the division of the Roman Empire Rhodes was part of the Eastern or Byzantine Empire until the island was occupied by the Knights Hospitaller, which is why the island is known as “The Island of the Knights”.
Rhodes fell to Ottoman forces in 1522 after a lengthy siege and was occupied by the Ottoman Empire. The island remained part of the Ottoman Empire until it was occupied and seized by Italy in 1912. It remained part of Italy until the end of WW2 when it was finally united with Greece in 1947.
