History of Mykonos

Mykonos during the antiquity period is much connected to their neighboring Delos history. The island is named after the son of the King of Delos, Mykonos. Another version was that the island was named after Mykons, a local hero who was regarded as Apollo’s son or grandson. According to mythology, the island was formed from the giants’ carcass that Hercules fought and threw inside the sea.

Based on the archaeological finds on Mykonos, the island was established by the Ionians during the 11th century BC. The Ionians came from Athens, and they settled in a place known today as Chora. The island also has close relations with Delos and they are not far from each other. Mykonos experienced prosperity during the glorious years of Delos as it became an important place for supplies and transit.

The island came under the control of the Romans during the reigns of the Roman Empire. In 1204, it was under the Byzantine Empire, and the Venetians inhabited the island. The island was also occupied by the pirates, Catalans, Turks, and Russians for a short period till the beginning of the Greek revolution. The island also played a crucial role with Manto Mavrogenous, one of the Greek national heroines in 1821, to fight for Greek independence. Although numerous occupations occupied the island, it prospered because of its geopolitical place, which makes it an important trading center.

The island went through a period of obscurity before it was discovered again in the 20th century by the locals. The island then became the favorite place for politicians and celebrities because of the findings of the excavations on Delos island.
