On the 3rd of September 1843, the garrison of Athens, supported by the majority of the Hellenic people, revolted against the
Monarchy, requesting a constitution. The main reasons behind the revolt were the autocratic reign of King Otho and his breaking
of the decision taken by the National Assemblies (1821-1827). The final agreement of Otho with the demands of the rebels signaled
the end of the Absolute Monarchy and the beginning of the new era of the Constitutional Monarchy.
