Greece is one of the oldest nations in history. It started out small, but grew to one of the famous countries of ancient Europe.
Farming reached Greece through Anatolia around 3000 BCE. In the 1900s, explorers on Crete found four palaces. Archaeologists believe that these were the capitals of early Greek civilizations. They also found evidence a war broke out between them. The kingdoms were united. However, in 1628 BCE, a volcanic eruption on the nearby island of Thera exploded the island, and created a tsunami that destroyed the coastal settlements. Then, the city-state of Mycenae conquered the island.
Mycenaeans and Greek Dark Ages
The Mycenaeans, with their new land, sacked the city-state of Troy on the Black Sea. However, other Greek tribes - most notable being the Dorians - invaded Mycenae and fully destroyed the kingdom. The period when Greek tribes were migrating into Greece from the north to the south and from west to east , are called the Greek Dark Ages .
Athens, Sparta, and Persia
Around 800 BCE, many small city-states emerged out of the Greek dark ages, and they flourished. The main states were Athens and Sparta. Then, Persia invaded Thrace, and the Greeks formed the Delican League to combat this threat. Athens is also the first known country to be democratic. With the Delican League, the Persians were expelled from Greece, but the Macedonians conquered all of Greece.
Alexander the Great
When his father died, Alexander took over Macedonia, which ruled over Greece, Macedonia and Thrace. He invaded the Persian Empire and conquered it. He advanced all the way to India! After his death though, his empire split into the states of Egypt, the Selecuids, and Macedonia.
Rome and the Byzantines
Macedonia supported Carthage against Rome during the Punic Wars, and Rome invaded in 196 BCE. Rome ruled parts Greece until the empire split, and it was ruled by the Byzantines until the early 1400s.
Ottomans and Independence
The new rulers of Greece, the Ottoman Empire, ruled Greece until 1821, when it revolted. It independence was recognised in 1830. Firstly Greece became a republic, by Ioannis Kapodisrtias, who unfortunately got assassinated in 1831 by anti-authoritarians. 2 Years later, became a kingdom after King Otto. And later lots of kings ruled Greece (George I, Constantine I...)
Greece aided Serbia and Bulgaria in the first Balkan war, but gained land from Bulgaria in the second. Greece sided with Britain and France in WWI, but remained neutral in WWII, until Italy invaded from Albania. Greece held out until Germany invaded in 1941. It was liberated by Britain in 1944. After WWII, there was a civil war between democrats and communists.The Democratics won and Greece joined NATO in 1952. On April 21st 1967, Sergeant Georgios Papadopoulos sided by his colleges established dictatorship. The people's disapproval was shown through protests. The pick of the demonstrations was the Politechnion takeover in November 15th-17th 1973, where many students took over the building and created a mini radio station, calling the people to revolt. The dictators sent a tank and army to disband the takeover. The dictatorship ended in 1974 and later the dictators got imprisoned (Papadopoulos died in 1999). When republic restored, because king Constantine II was in exile, a referendum took place, whose result was against monarchy, that was the official abolition of Greek Kingdom. In 1981, Greece officially joined the EU. Greece's currency is the Euro since 2002. Greece's major borrowing and low income has put in a tight economic position and high debt (currently €317 billion)

Kebab Master Lel
Greece kills FYROM, Albania, and turkey and becomes the Socialist Greek Empire but Zintonuim declares independence and conquers Greece.
In 2018, they end the financial crisis and grows their very strong army to conquer the lost Greek lands.
In 2020s, they take European Turkey and Northern Epirus from Albania but then one year later after the conquest of Constantinople, FYROM annexes Macedonia because Greece has a weakened army after a strong military strategy and lots of casualties to allow conquer Constantinople, meaning 200,000 of them were killed during the conquest and 150,000 for Turks.
The capital is Constantinople in 2030s. Mainland Greece (without Macedonia), Northern Epirus and Constantinople is the only part of Greece and have bitter relations with FYROM over Thessaloniki (FYROM: Solun/Солун), because the Slavic Macedonians want to rewrite the true history of Macedonia.
In March 2018 during the economic boom (rise) Greece rocketed out of debt and the government is now being careful not to crash back down (again)and so seeks to amend ways with Turkey, In May 2018 during when Cyprus is re-united Turkey was offered a EU application but refuses claiming that Greece and Turkey will be forming a union, in August 2018 Greece and Turkey unite to create the Republic of Hellenia.
