Battle of Navarino

In the Battle of Navarino (October 20, 1827), a combined Turkish and Egyptian armada was destroyed by an allied British, French, and Russian naval force at the port of Navarino in Pylos, Greece. The allied ships were mainly faster and better-armed than their Egyptian and Turkish enemies, causing a rather quick victory. It mainly resulted from the Turkish rejection of the 1827 Treaty of London, which stipulated that if the treaty was rejected, the allied forces would sail against the Turkish forces. The most important result of this battle was the end of the Greek Liberation War and the affirmation of independence of modern Greece.
