1831 – Assasination

It had been decided in 1823 that Nafplio would be the temporary seat of the revolutionary government. Capodistrias moved the capital of the Greek State back there in 1829. He embarked on an extended social welfare program, promoted education, land reform and organised the administration and the army. He was assassinated outside the Saint Spyridon church in Nafplio by his political rivals in September 1831.
