Since 1821, everywhere in France, England, Germany, the announcement of the Revolution, inspired mainly by the ideas of the French Revolution, has spread and spread. A philhellenic tendency mobilizes both public opinion and rallying, on the side of the rebellious Greeks, romantic young men and veteran soldiers who rush to fight for the Greek cause. Mobilization is felt everywhere.

The documents kept in: National Library of France, National Historical Museum of Athens, Greek Parliament Library, Geneva Library and Louvre, are witnesses of the time.
