HISTORY
Kythnos. The small island of west Cyclades-according to archaeological findings-is inhabited since Mesolithic Age.
As first settlers of the island are mentioned Driopes, whose king was Kythnos, from whom the island was named. In archaic times the island distinguished for the way it was administrated. Characteristic is the phrase “Kythnion State” used by Aristotelis to show the perfect governance of the island.
Following the rest of Cyclades islands, Kythnos, suffered a lot of conquerors. During history, Macedonians, Romans and Byzantines dominated the island.
In 1207 Kythnos is governed by Venetians and in 1537 by Turkish.
In the Revolution of 1821, Kythnos helped with all her powers. It was adjusted to Greece in 1832.
