25 March 1821/1830 (Independence from the Ottoman Empire)
Greece is a country in southeastern Europe, bordering Albania, F.Y.R.O.M, Bulgaria and Turkey. It consists of the mainland and several islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Greece's capital and largest city is Athens.
Greek mythology included the tales of Perseus, Jason and Heracles, whose stories were reflections of human contact with the Pieces of Eden. Alexander the Great, who ruled an Empire spanning from Greece to Egypt and India, used a Staff of Eden given to him by the Templars.
Pythagoras and KyrosEdit
During the sixth century BCE, the famous scholar Pythagoras and his disciple Kyros of Zarax lived in Samos, a small island in Greece, where Pythagoras became a well respected man by discovering the Tetractys.
A few years later, they moved to Croton, Italy, where Pythagoras founded his own academy to teach young scholars everything he knew. However, tension in Croton began to rise and Pythagoras and Kyros were forced to flee back to Greece after a few years.
Kyros then decided to travel to Arcadia, hoping to challenge its princess, Atalanta, to a race and be allowed to marry her. Before traveling to Arcadia, however, Kyros first ventured to the abandoned temple of Aphrodite, where he found an Apple of Eden. With the help of the ancient artifact, he was able to defeat Atalanta, earning her hand in marriage.
While Greece was under Ottoman rule during the Renaissance, the Templars under the Byzantine flag controlled Athens. They were rooted out by the Turkish Assassins, sent by the Mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze, who established Assassin Dens in the city and recovered Isu technology that was discovered beneath the Acropolis.
During the 1510s, the Assassins stored an Apple of Eden in one of their hideout in the country, which according to Giovanni Borgia was their most remote european spot. However, in 1516, one of their own, Hiram Stoddard, assaulted the location in order to recover the artifact, but was prevented to do so by Borgia.
