The Greek Embassy in London was among the first diplomatic missions established after the foundation of the Hellenic Kingdom in 1828. Distinguished Greek Ambassadors at the Court of St James were Spyridon Trikoupis (1834-1837, 1841-1843, 1849-1862), who also served as Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Charilaos Trikoupis (1862-1865) who served seven times as Prime Minister, Ioannis Gennadius (1910-1918), a seminal literary figure in the UK, and Nobel laureate George Seferis (1957-1962).
The archive covers the Greek-British relations. From 1939 to 1950 the material is related to the period of WWII, the Greek refugees, the famine in occupied Greece, the Greek Red Cross, the war crimes committed by Nazi Germany, Italy and Bulgaria, the National Office for War Crimes, the United Nations War Crimes Commission, the war reparations.
