In Greece, young army officers initiate a revolt against the ruling royal family

-
A revolt of young army officers broke out in Greece against the rule of the Bavarian-born royal family.  Centered on the port and fortress town of Navplion in the northeast Peloponnese, the revolt was put down by the Bavarian-led royal army of King Otto which captured Navplion on April 20, 1862.  A later revolt, in October 1862, however, was successful in deposing the monarchy and Otto spent the remainder of his life in exile.  (By John Osborne)
