The publication Ἡ Ἱστορία ἔχει πρόσωπο – Μορφὲς τοῦ 1821 στὴν Ἑλλάδα τοῦ Ὄθωνα ἀπὸ τὸν βέλγο διπλωμάτη Benjamin Mary presents 125 unpublished drawings of 320 exceptional individuals from the album of the Belgian diplomat and artist Benjamin Mary (1792-1846). This volume constitutes a landmark in the portrayal of combatants, politicians, members of the clergy and everyday people, bringing to light previously unknown images that enrich Greek history.

The reader is transported to the Greece of King Othon, about 20 years after the beginning of the War of Independence. There we meet the figures of the time and become spectators of the work undertaken by the National Assembly of 1843-1844, when modern Greece acquired its new constitution after the 3 September 1843 Revolution.
