Early life and Greek Revolution

Ioannis Orlandos

In Hydra where he was living since 1811 he married the sister of George Canning. He was a member of the delegation who, on 1825, summed the second loan, £2,000,000. He returned to Greece on 1825 and continued representing Hydra at the National Assemblies.

Life in independent Greece

Orlandos was a member of the English Party, considering the UK as the most effective country as of helping the revolution. He selected them due to the Kingdom's liberal political heritage and also its superiority in sea. Then he joined the anti-capodistrian faction stating that he preferred Greece a British protectorate instead of tolerating Ioannis Kapodistrias' authoritarian administration. So he was in the anti-capodistrian demonstrations of Hydra, on the summer of 1831. After all these and in searching for scapegoats to apologise for the loans, he and Louriotis were accused of wrongful administration. They were firstly acquitted but, in 1835 the court characterised them responsible for the loss of £28,769. On 1839 they published their huge apology in two volumes which they later renounced. On 1837 he was one of the founding members of the Archaeological Society of Athens.
