The assassination of Odysseas Androutsos at the Acropolis of Athens.

Odysseas Androutsos, ever since the beginning of the Revolution, contributed immensely to it. However, being a particularly powerful and well-liked leader to the Greek people, he had generated many personal enemies. Based on various incidents, his enemies accused him of treason against the homeland. Eventually, Androutsos surrendered to Yiannis Gouras (who was once in his entourage). Gouras promised him that he would be sent to the Peloponnese to have a fair trial. But he did not keep his promise and imprisoned him in the Acropolis. He ordered Androutsos' execution on June 5, 1825. At first, his death was presented as an accident during the prisoner's alleged attempt to escape. But the truth soon surfaced. Androutsos was the last victim of the civil conflict.
