The St. Petersburg Protocol

Following the rise of Tsar Nicholas I to the Russian throne (December 1825) and after discussions with the English envoy Duke Wellington, the Protocol of Petersburg was signed on 23 March/4 April between the two countries. This is the first diplomatic document that acknowledges Greece's political existence and assigns the two forces as mediators for the creation of a Greek state, autonomous and tax-subject to the Sultan.
