Bulgaria Regains Independence from Ottoman Empire

Though the April Uprising of 1876, a Bulgarian revolt against the perceived Ottoman oppression, failed as a revolution, it succeeded in raising international support for the Bulgarian plight. News of atrocities committed by Ottoman troops suppressing the uprising quickly spread to the international community, and Russia soon declared war on the Ottomans. The subsequent Treaty of San Stefano created a large autonomous Bulgaria within the Ottoman Empire, but it was later revised. Why? More...

This treaty between Russia and Turkey was signed by representatives of the Russian and Ottoman empires on March 3, 1878 at the end of the Russo-Turkish War. Among its provisions, the treaty recognized the principality of Montenegro and created larger boundaries for it; recognized Serbia as independent and enlarged its boundaries; recognized Romania's independence, and created a large state of Bulgaria. It also ordered Turkey to pay a large indemnity to Russia.

Agreed upon as a "preliminary treaty of peace", the treaty was replaced by the Treaty of Berlin on July 13, 1878; aspects of the Treaty of San Stefano were altered.

Lord Salisbury issued a circular note on April 1, 1878, proposing modifications of the Treaty of San Stefano, in the direction of removing exclusive Russian advantages, protecting British interests, and securing, without impairing Turkish sovereignty, improvement in the position of the subject peoples of Turkey. Prince Gortchakoff answered this on April 9, asking for specific proposals, and adding comments in an annex. Russia's armies in Turkey were losing effective rapidly. It was not prepared for a general war, nor was any ally in sight in case one should break out. It was therefore ready to make considerable concessions.

The Temple of Artemis

The Temple of Artemis was a large Greek temple at Ephesus that was said to be one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The temple, dedicated to Artemis, the virgin goddess of the hunt and the moon and twin sister of Apollo, was a 120-year project started by Croesus of Lydia and completed around 550 BCE. The temple was destroyed and rebuilt numerous times. It was first destroyed in 356 BCE in an act of arson committed by Herostratus. What was his motivation? More...

Because the Dual Monarchy that was the Austria-Hungarian Empire was afraid that establishment of a large independent Slavic state in the Balkans would encourage other Slavs living in the Austro-Hungarian Empire to also seek an independent break-away state. Accordingly, both Britain and Austria-Hungary sought for the treaty to be revised
