The first civil war of the Revolution took place in the Peloponnese between the fall of 1823 and July 1824. On the one hand fought the "pro-Government," i.e., the Hydreans and the elders of the northwest Peloponnese (Zaimis, Londos) and on the other fought the "Anti-Government", i.e., notable elders and militants of the Peloponnese, under Kolokotronis. Each opposing group created its government, with headquarters in Kranidi and Tripolitsa, respectively. In February and March of 1824, there were fierce battles, at which the "pro-Government" dominated. After negotiations, they agreed to end hostilities on May 22, 1824. Theodoros Kolokotronis agreed to the government of G. Kountouriotis, which in July granted amnesty to its opponents.
